This is a truly fascinating plot, very twisty, and the nice little romance, along with period atmosphere and setting, makes it a treat for the English mystery-lover.

The book, overall, was not bad at all. I personally prefer Christie's Poirot-centric novels but this one was entertaining enough. The plot was clever and the ending definately satisfying. It's definately worth picking up while at the library or book store.

This is a slightly unusual Christie mystery. Miss Marple doesn't show up until page 86 of a story with 122 pages. Even so, the story works. Christie's mastery of human nature and plausible red herrings combine to form a solid mystery. One reader complained there was too much romance. I disagree. Romance and love, plus all the wonders and complications associated with both, are integral parts of Christie's works. They may be used to explain motivation behind the mystery, or to create red herrings, or to add versimilitude to a character, or some combination of all these things.

Before I begin my rant about romance I'll say that it is a very good book mostly because I like books in the first person. I did not like the romance. It was a bad idea. This is supposed to be a murder mystery, not a romance! I personally think that the romance ruined this and most other books. It would have given it five stars if it had not been for the romance, which cut off two stars. I'm not surprised this had Miss Marple. In most of the books by Agatha Cristie I've read Miss Marple was in it. Like 'Murder At The Vicarage' she plays a small part, because we're always with Jerry, the narrator. She still solved the mystery, but she came in near the end.

I've read like 20 or 25 Christie's books, and this is the first one I found dreadful. Too romantic, TOO SILLY, and where is Miss Marple?
