And Then There Were None
The characters are all suspicious of one another, and accusations fly. None know anyone well enough to trust them at their words, and yet that's all they have to go on. The psychological effects make for quite an entertaining and clever progression. Rather than rushing through the explanation, I might have paused to consider the developments. I'd like to think I'm clever enough to have deduced, at least loosely, who the culprit was, but perhaps I give myself too much credit.
At any rate, it's an enjoyably quick read, much more perplexing than frightening.
