I’d recommend trying one of the other editions My comments are not about the novel, but about this Kindle edition….the diagrams and pictures which are apparently critical to solving the puzzle are missing. I am only 25% of the way in, but have already missed 4 drawings – 2 diagrams of the layout, a picture of a clue fragment, etc., which Christie felt were important to include. I peeked at the end to see if they were there, and there is a photo of Christie and other info, but not the missing clues. I’d recommend trying one of the other…

and a great example of the large body of works by Agatha … This is one of the classics of mystery writing, and a great example of the large body of works by Agatha Christie. It is definitely worth a read, even if you are not a regular mystery reader.

Vintage English country home mystery. This was an interesting puzzle and it keeps one interested, but it is not not a profound book. The vintage phrases and country life descriptions of the times are, however, quite engaged.
