Gambit, Rex Stout

A little stronger of a mystery this time. I would never excel as a solver of locked room mysteries, because I tend to enjoy the writing too much (when it is good) than I cultivate an ability to cull facts. Here Stout gives you plenty of clues and hints towards the solution of the murder, almost literally telling you how it was committed in the first 50 pages. I missed it completely. Another excellent Nero Wolfe novel.
