Unfortunately, the ending fails to live up to the promise of the first half of the two-parter. The solutions to the first two crimes are dull and uninspired—in fact, it’s one of the oldest and worst cheats in the book. The third crime should never have occurred, but did so due to the sheer incompetence of the police. And while that’d be okay if the solution to the third crime was good, the solution is a variation on one of the oldest and most boring tricks in the book. But I do like the ending of this story, despite my reservations on the solution.
