By the Pricking of My Thumbs Author:Agatha Christie Because a sweet old lady disappeared, Tommy and Tuppence Beresford, that shrewd and engaging detective team, came out of retirement to take on their most baffling case.
This is the first Agatha Christie mystery I've read, and sadly I am underwhelmed. The characters talked too much, much too much, and repeated what happened chattily too many times--almost as if the author was trying to keep track of things herself. The mystery was thin, the revelation of new clues often preposterous. I am dismayed I didn't love this book and then want to devour others by Ms. Christie. Sadly, that will not be.
