I've only started reading books last month. This book kept me flipping through pages and pages. I find that through the first 3/4 of the book there was not much clues or motives to craft a basis on the murderer and the ending was a flurry of words to reveal everything. Still a good read though.

The abandoned room is a mystery story with surprising end. It reminds of a work written by Edgar Wallace, Arthur Conan Doyle or Agatha Christy. Although some parts are interesting overall it's average.
