Good Tale With a Christie Oft Repeated M.O.
8 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Christie liked to throw you a loop, as does many a mystery writer. Alas, she did not always play fair, withholding info and dynamics crucial to the real perp until the end. But, who said mystery writers had to play fair?

Here, there's the clear insinuation that one is definitely "mad" (in other venues, the evil one), yet at the end it is turned about to reveal it is indeed the counterpart party. But, a well casted and produced account, which provides enjoyment as it goes along with class and style. We get to see the "evil one" forced to play his hand and the timeworn lovers finally united.
