rating: 4 of 5 stars
I can't now remember what made me want to read this book except that I know it was mentioned in another book. But I do like a good Agatha Christie now and again. This is probably my favorite, so far. I do like Poirot (I've seen most of the television series), but I have always avoided reading Christie's books with him as the main character. Why? I don't know. He was good fun in this one and "knew everything."
This was a good, quick, and surprising read. You suspect everyone at some point. I even suspected the actual murderer periodically during the book but always managed to become convinced that it was this or that other person. And during the last few pages before the final unveiling when I was finally cluing in to who it must be, I was still shocked.
Have you ever read a book where "clue" is spelled "clew?" I cannot believe I have never encountered this.
