Book Description
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense--creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters--brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to William Morrow Paperbacks. In Sparkling Cyanide, Christie seats six--including a murderer--around a dining table set for seven , one year to the day that a beautiful heiress was poisoned in that very room.

My Review
This was a light easy read but very enjoyable. It had a good plot with well-drawn characters and kept me guessing until the very end. I liked the fact that everyone had a motive which made guessing the murderer a lot harder. I had not read a Christie book for a couple of years and it was good to read one again. I look forward to reading more of her books which I haven't read yet.
