Agatha Christie is the best known mystery novelist of the 20th Century--and with good reason, for when it came to plots, truly fiendish plots, she could easily out-construct all competitors. She also had a knack for writing tongue-in-cheek, exhibiting a sly sense of humor for those sharp enough to catch it.
I've just started reading this book And it has captured my imagination completely. I've only read 200 pages but i just can't wait to get to then end and see who is the killer. Who is lying. and why the blowpipe as a murder weapon? so many questions.
This book is fantastic. One of the best novels I've read. After reading Death on the Nile, which had a huge introduction till the actual murder; The murder in this takes place within twenty pages or so. And that is where the fun starts. Unless you're not a murder mystery fan, I don't think there is anyone who won't like this book.
