Editorial Reviews

Mary Jane Clark
“From the unforgettable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, two crime solvers who rival the near-peerless Sherlock Holmes, to the post-climactic jolts of And Then There Were None and The Witness for the Prosecution, Agatha Christie is in a class by herself.”

This is a good book that keeps you in suspence throughout the whole thing. The ending is especailly intersting, the whole book leads you to believe something that is not. If you like to be suprised, this is the book for you.
