Carefully plotted, suspenseful, and a personal favorite. If Christie’s Towards Zero (1944), published after The Moving Finger (1943) and before Death Comes As the End (1945), ranks as a personal favorite, it does so largely because it is one of Christie’s novels which I return to repeatedly and find myself quickly engrossed, even though I know its ending.Christie’s power in Towards Zero is her ability to create a sinister air which permeates this novel written at the height of her career. While the absence of Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot…

THE MOST PHENOMENAL, STUPEFYING, RIVETING, HAUNTING OF ALL ! Call me dumb, but this is my all-time sentimental favorite that left me gaping the 1st time I read it (waaay back when I was still in mini-skirts & pony-tails). Years – and dozens of Christie – later, it still stands high as the most amazing murder web ever-penned. A touch of romance here & there doesn’t hurt either. A stunner woven with magnetic story-telling, glittering characters & a sensational, mind-shattering ending. Pure EVIL !

Antoinette Klein says:

Definitely One of Christie’s Best Agatha Christie was at the top of her form in the 1940’s and this novel first published in 1944 could very well be her very best. Not only do we have an outstanding detective story complete with murder, motives, opportunities, red herrings, and numerous suspects, but we also have Christie probing the mind of a psychopathic killer. She has done this in other works, but never so brilliantly as she does it in “Towards Zero.”
