- Author Agatha Christie
This was more of a page-turning thriller than the more sedate whodunit’s I’m used to from Christie, but it was still quite interesting in its own way. The introduction suggested it was a satire, which did come across in the text, but I must admit most of what it was sending up went over my head - I guess that’s just a lack of knowledge of the period, really.
I quite liked the mystery, though, and our plucky heroine being brave and clever and thoughtful throughout. Twists and turns here and there, so that I really didn’t have a guess of what was going on by the time it was revealed. Fun and informal, but certainly not a favourite Christie work.
