Emily Trefussis makes a fantastic protagonist, and even though I remembered most of the salient points I was still stumped as to the how when I reread this. The clues are buried very deep. With the addition of just the right touch of wry humor and unique characters, this is a very strong Christie mystery.
I liked this wintertime mystery. I especially liked how Emily figured out the truth behind Trevelyan's murder.
Murder at Hazelmoor (aka The Sittaford Mystery)
M-U-R-D-E-R. It began as an innocent parlor game intended to while away the hours on a bitter winter night. But the message that appeared before the amateur occultists snowbound at the Sittaford House was spelled out as loud and clear as a scream. Of course, the notion that they had foretold doom was pure bunk. Wasn't it? And the discovery of a corpse was pure coincidence. Wasn't it? If they're to discover the answer to this baffling murder, perhaps they should play again. But a journey into the spirit world could prove terribly dangerous--especially when the killer is lurking in this one.
One of my favorite from Agatha Christie, in fact I've been keeping this on my keeper shelf but I really have to pare it down before it takes over our house.
Typically, lovely Agatha Christie! A wonderful, quick read including all the trappings of the English countryside, small village gossip, etc. Terrific!
Title of book is The Murder at Hazelmoor The first chapter is called Sittaford House For some unknown reason, the ISBN brings up title of first chapter instead of title of the book.
A quick read but a lot of fun. Good characters and a mystery that keeps layering. Vintage Christie!
I love Agatha Christie! I slowly working my way through the whole series. Slowly because there won't be any new ones. I love Hercule Piorot, he's my favorite detective!
