Christie sucked all the suspense out of this novel by creating a protagonist who is unflappable. He is so cool that no matter how much mystery surrounds him, he is able to come up with a witty one-liner to kill the mood. I love Christie but I need some emotion besides this kid being a smart ass to hold my interest.

A surprise ending to a mystery not involing Miss Marple or Poirot. Interesting reading thruout.

One of my favorite Christies (and I've read them all), as it combines the usual masterful intrigue with humor and romance- a perfect combination!
