Did the Butler Do It?

One of the great mystery clichés examined

Warning: this does have at least one spoiler for fans of Early 20th Century Mystery fiction--to say more would be to perpetuate the spoilage.

Indeed, the butler as culprit was something I had encountered only once in my mystery reading, and that in the book cited for the crime; and the crime a result of unusual hurried plotting and writing according to the article.  Fascinating.
