An Energizer Bunny–It Keeps on Running As a mystery novelist with my debut book in its initial release (and a one-time drama coach), I enjoy Agatha Christie’s THE MOUSETRAP every time I view it.

Mousetrap is superb! i didn’t care much for the other stories but Mousetrap was real good – I seem to have bought this book long ago- ofcourse the cover was different.
