The reveal. It’s a critical part of every detective story. The suspects are gathered. The suspense is built. No one knows who did it except the detective… and the murderer! I don’t know who was the first author to gather everyone in the study for the grand reveal, and I don’t know who was the first to pin everything on the butler, but they created the archetypical detective reveal scenarios. Above is a modest attempt to put an Agatha Christie type spin on the reveal. No, this is not Hercule Poirot, but a similarly saavy European mastermind of great eccentricities named Monsignor Aberdint.
