The Decagon House Murders

This was weird. It's apparently a foundational text in a genre of murder mystery in which psychological realism is thrown to the winds, and all the clues you need to figure out the mystery are actually included. I quit partway through, after it started feeling more like a sudoku puzzle and less like a story. To be fair, the review I read warned me of this, but I never got to the 'electrifying solution'. Maybe I'll give it another try later...
