At a a family New Year’s Eve party, James Paradine the patriarch, announces that someone has betrayed the family and that he will wait until midnight for a confession. But the next morning his body is found – he’s dead and likely been murdered by someone who was at the party.  There are no less than 10 possible suspects.  The family thinks that the police will manipulate a suspect so they hire their own investigator.  This book is totally Agatha Christie vein.   Fun but somewhat dated.
