2 mystery reviews: The Flanders Panel and The Man on the Balcony
Originally published in April 2005, on my original 52 Books blog.
This is a good, spooky, twisty mystery with a chess game at its heart. Even if you know nothing about chess, you can still enjoy it - I only know how the chessmen move around the board, and I liked it.
This is an especially good read for lovers of realistic and true crime stories. 3 stars.
