This was splendid. However, there has been one question that has been driving me nuts for most of the book: How massive was that deed box?
I've been wondering about that, too. :) It can't be the tiny sort on display in the adaptation of "Strong Poison" ...

At least the size of the (barely visible) bottom one in this picture, probably: https://www.instagram.com/p/B9nd-lFAHSR/?igshid=wjjmj7jr5qvt
... or one of these: https://i.etsystatic.com/11418038/r/il/31a842/1894350284/il_fullxfull.1894350284_og39.jpg

Yeah, it would have had to be more of a trunk. Apart from the deed box question, I enjoyed this one very much, especially the remarks directed at other mystery writers.
Yes, me too. And seriously, it takes a lot of talent and skill to make a mystery whose resolution relies on this type of legal / accounting technicality come off as so apparently light-hearted -- just about every other author with a legal training would have made it sound dry as dust ... and lost his readers.
