Reviews

"What more...can a mystery addict desire?"--New York Times
"A brilliantly ingenious story."--Dorothy L. Sayers, Daily Herald (UK)
"[Moves] smoothly and entertainingly to its surprise conclusion."--Chicago Daily Tribune
"Need it be said--the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end."--Times Literary Supplement (London)
"Agatha Christie's books are both wonderful crime novels and studies in contrast and duality, and I adore them still. Underestimate them at your peril."--Louise Penny, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of the Inspector Gamache novels
"It's tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world's had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special."--Lawrence Block, New York Times bestselling author
"Nothing short of swell. [Christie] is probably the best suspicion scatterer and diverter in the business."--New York Herald Tribune

"I always wanted to be Agatha Christie when I grew up. I still do."--J. A. Jance, New York Times-bestselling author of the Joanna Brady and J. P. Beaumont novels
