The Decagon House Murders - Yukito Ayatsuji, Ho-Ling Wong, Soji Shimada

Both this and my other ILL book are short, but I don't know that I can finish them both before I leave for my vacation. I'm concentrating on this one because, of the two, it was the hardest to get, I think because it's owned by fewer libraries.

 

No one has died yet, and I'm impatient. The characters and situation aren't interesting enough to make up for it. The only two characters I can consistently keep straight are Agatha and Orczy (the all go by literary nicknames), and that's because they're the only women and are basically polar opposites.

 

The one interesting thing that's happened so far: if you can take it at face value, the Mystery Club's visit to the island was arranged by someone who was supposed to have died, and who apparently blames them all for the death of his daughter by alcohol poisoning.
