Then there are some minor points that strike me as suggestive - for instance, the position of Mrs. Hubbard's sponge bag, the name of Mrs. Armstrong's mother, the detective methods of Mr. Hardman, the suggestion of Mr. MacQueen that Ratchett himself destroyed the charred note we found, Princess Dragomiroff's Christian name, and a grease spot on a Hungarian passport.
The draw of this book, as it is with all of Agatha Christie’s whodunits, is the ingenuity of the mystery itself...Agatha Christie has written dozens and dozens of murder mysteries, some better than others, but all brilliant. If that’s your passion, you know where to look.
I really enjoyed this mystery, I actually found myself trying to piece together the mystery and solve it, and although I guessed whodunit, half way through the book, it was still a fun read and one of my favourite Christie mysteries to date...I’d definitely read recommend this Christie book.
It has been a long time since I read a (non-young adult fiction) book in a day, but this novel certainly sucked me in. It was very easy to read and I enjoyed the characters...READ IT. It was a quick enjoyable read and I could definitely see reading more of Christie’s novels, especially one featuring the pop-cultural icon Miss. Marple.
...I always enjoy reading Christie's books but this one's definitely one of the best. You'll be shouting 'no way!' when you find out who did it. Then you'll go back, read it again...If you're looking to start reading Agatha Christie novels, this is a great one to start off with.
