Opinion

From Library Staff

Many consider Agatha Christie the grand dame of Mysteries for her clever, complex plots. She also laid the foundation for the "fair play" mystery: No clues are hidden from the reader, so with careful attention it is possible to solve the mystery. - Novelist

The Agatha Christie books are always a little difficult to get through, being that they were written so long ago, but nevertheless, these murder mysteries are always original, unique, and unpredictable. Throughout this book, I literally thought 3 different people could have been the murderer, and that everyone was suspicious. Agatha Christie is definitely one of the best murder mystery writers of all time- you'll never know who done it. This book had an ending I never would have expected, but was incredibly clever.
