Why Didn't They Ask Evans?
Was it a misstep that sent the handsome stranger plummeting to his death from a cliff? Or something more sinister? Fun-loving adventurers Bobby Jones and Francis Derwit's suspicions are certainly aroused-especially since the man's dying words were so peculiar: Why didn't they ask Evans? Bobby and Francis would love to know. Unfortunately, asking it of the wrong people have sent the amateur sleuths running for their lives-on a wild and deadly pursuit to discover who Evans is, what it was he wasn't asked, and why the mysterious inquiry has put their own lives in mortal danger...

Brilliant! The characters are amusing, the ending was strong... An amazing book. Five stars! The Evans topic could have been more dominant, however. I feel that it was a bit overshadowed by other things that were going on. Despite the fact neuther Poirot or Miss Marple starres in this novel, it was still pretty fantastic.
Pirote or miss marple. Just goes to show how dangerous a golf game can be. todays beer drinker note clue of the beer bottle page counter
This is a really good book. I just finished it yesterday, and I loved it. It is really suspenseful and well written.
Another book that doesnt have M. Hercule POirot in it nor miss Jane Marple. But still the book is very interesting though not a very intelligent plot. A very plain story that lacks credibility at times. But Christie has done a marvellous job by giving it this title that keeps the reader wondering till the very end. The book has a few characters and the last words of a dying man which are the most intriguing part of it.
