Suspense in Amontillado

How does Poe create suspense in "The Cask of Amontillado"?  Answer: very carefully.

I am not going to rewrite the article here, that would be a lot of work and/or just copying somebody else's work.  The author of the article does a good job of explaining which elements create suspense and how, which is something I cannot do.
