Not my favorite--I was surprised by not enjoying it so much. PBS recently did an adaptation changed it around quite a bit but I actually enjoyed it a lot more.

Fire burn and cauldron bubble, bell, book, and candle, and all that rot, eh what! Shades of H. G. Wells and Conan Doyle! Hey, guess what? No Marple, no Poirot, no Parker Pyne! Though we do meet and old acquaintance from Third Girl: Mrs. Oliver, a well-published mystery writer. Three deaths later (at least one a cold-blooded murder) our narratora published author himselfinvites himself to The Pale Horse, a former inn and now a haven for occult shenanigans that is inhabited by a psychic, a medium, and a witch. Pale Horse, Pale Rider. Wait; thats Katherine Ann Porter. No, its the Bible. No, its both. Anyway it fits in as Death rides the Pale Horse and our necromancers allegedly can induce deathfor a fee, of course. I thought that this was one of Aunties better mysteries: right to the end.

Excellent - not her top seller I surmise but quite captivating need to turn just one more page, one more chapter.

An interesting, gripping mystery. One of the things I find so interesting in reading Christie's mysterys is seeing where a lot of modern mystery plots and twists and turns were first written down.

One of Christie's non poirot or marple. Mark Esterbook is the detective. Her usual well characterized and plotted mystery with sufficient, though buried clues. Published in 1989.

Agatha Christie is a great mystery writer. She has earned the title as the Queen of Crime.

The dying woman turned to Father Gorman with agony in her eyes, "Stopped...It must be stopped." The priest said, "I will do what is necessary. You can trust me." Father Gorman tucked the list of names she had given him into his shoe. It was a meaningless list; the names were of people that had nothing in common. On his way home, Father Gorman was murdered. The police found the list and Mark Easterbrook discovered a connection between the people on that list... Every one of them was either already dead... Or, marked for murder! This great book is very hard to find!
