This is about the 5th or 6th Agatha Christie book that I've read in a row. Whole I found the plot to this book captivating, I was frustrated that the ending answered as many questions as it opened up, thus was left feeling unsatisfied. I also find that reading AC books sometimes feels (to me) like I'm reading a play. The characters are 2-dimensional and I don't really connect. ( )

Just okay - I am not a mystery fan. ( )

Jane Marple is traditionally based in the village of St .Mary Mead, but this case involves an extremely respectable London hotel, catering to nice old ladies and Anglican clergy. ( )

I figured out some of the little mysteries, but the biggest plot twist ended up being a complete surprise. I love Christie and her Miss Marple character is so aware of things. ( )

Enjoyable, though Christie is a bit more skakey when she tries to move past the cozies, here with an international crime syndicate. In some ways it was reminscent of The Seven Dials. Well done and fun but there is only one more unread Christe in the pile!

For Harry Smith

First words
In the heart of the West End, there are many quiet pockets, unknown to almost all but taxi drivers who traverse them with expert knowledge, and arrive triumphantly thereby at Park Lane, Berkeley Square or South Audley Street.
