Great Agatha Christie novel. But why buy it when you can get a free pdf. Seems like kind of a rip-off.
Have to admit my suspect kept changing. I missed some clues thanks to red herrings lol. Hats off to Miss Christie and her mysterious brain.
I loved this book; it is my favorite Agatha Christie. I loved the characters, the setting and the mystery. I have read many of her books, but most of them lack character development. I did not like Murder on the Orient Express, because of the characters. I love books with characters I find interesting and care about.
I read this on Kindle – another great read – I will download another. Thanks for the links & downloads.
What a story!! The twists, the turns… Poirot was excellent in this one. And I really, really loved Katherine and her character. This is a keeper for sure.
…and not as expertly as, for example, in “And Then There Were None” (I know, the latter’s not a Poirot). Slightly incredible solution, untypical for Agatha Christie.
