Editorial Reviews

New York Times
“The whole thing is utterly impossible and utterly fascinating. It is the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written.”
Elizabeth George
“What Agatha Christie taught me was all about the delicate placement of the red herring. She was the ultimate genius behind ‘by indirections shall we find directions out.’ ”
Time magazine
“One of the most ingenious thrillers in many a day.”
New Statesman (UK)
“There is no cheating; the reader is just bamboozled in a straightforward way from first to last….The most colossal achievement of a colossal career. The book must rank with Mrs. Christie’s previous best—on the top notch of detection.”
The Observer (UK)
“One of the very best, most genuinely bewildering Christies.”
Daily Herald (UK)
“The most astonishingly impudent, ingenious and altogether successful mystery story since The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.”
