I have been reading Agatha Christie mysteries for years, and this one is seldom kept in stock at book stores. I think the title is the reason the book hasn't become as popular as some of her other books. It seems a lot of Agatha Christie Books get retitled, and I think this one would benefit by doing that. It is a really good story that is very appropriate for these difficult economic times. A wealthy man makes sure all his extended family is well taken care of financially for decades. Late in life, he marries a much younger woman. He unexpectedly dies, and suddenly she controls the financial fate of a family she barely met. Needless to say, this is a good premise, and each person in the extended family has motive to kill her. I decided to spend the summer reading Agatha Christie novels that I don't have in my library. I highly recommend this one because it is as good as the best of her mysteries. It was also published as "There Is A Tide" which isn't a much better title. Her choice of the extended family's name was far better (The Cloades) and much more imaginative than either title. Give this one a read. It is worth your time.

I would rate this book in my (mysteries) top 5 for it's different plot. It would have been one of the most difficult and infact unsolved case, but for H.Poirot. The best part about his book is normally you see Poiort saying complex is simple but this one was apparently so simple and yet one of the most complicated mysteries by Agatha Christie. You will know what I mean in the end. I liked the end apart from the culprit being caught.

By this time, Christie had been penning books for about 20 years. Even after all the time passed and stories written, this one is as fresh and interesting as any written before it. Psychology, human nature, the "little grey cells", and lots of probable red herrings come together for a great mystery. The only tricky bit is how the majority of people today won't understand how a very old-fashioned British phone box worked. Even so, it doesn't detract from the story.

As many of her books this one is quite well written.The book demonstrates that almost everyone has a weakness to money, but can they resist it? How do the village inhabitants of Warmsley Vale react when they no longer have money from relatives to depend on? This book is a true test of human character. Another innovative piece de resistance!!!
