Much as I enjoyed this, I have to say that I didn't think this was among Christie's best. I found the plot a little convoluted and hard to follow sometimes. I found some of the characters difficult to tell apart at times (although I think that's something that I sometimes struggle with, since I am terrible at remembering names). Perhaps it's because I haven't read a Christie for a while, and need to "acclimatize" myself to the style. But perhaps, it's simply that this was Agatha's first book.
