When it comes to the Queen of Crime, I’ve read (and collected) a lot of her books. I love Hercule Poirot, and like Miss Marple. Even some of her standalone books are top notch too. I didn’t know what to expect from this book, but it was AC, and she rarely fails to deliver interesting books!
When a body is discovered by two golfers, a mystery begins. Before he dies, the man says something strange that bewilders the one who finds him. Soon after, there is an attempt to kill him as well. But he survives, and together with his friend, set out to solve the mystery! Two detectives borne out of a need to understand why one of them was the target of a killer. And what a recent accidental death that had happened had to do with it.
I loved reading the plan that was hatched by Frankie and Bobby and how it was executed. I kind of fell for the deception that Christie does and didn’t realize it till later. That’s the author’s good work of course. The characters were interesting and the back stories well stitched. It kept me engaged from the first page to the last. I liked both main characters, and thought even the secondary character were well thought of as well.
Not one of my favourite books from Agatha Christie’s collection but definitely an enjoyable one. Worth a read, and I’d recommend for sure.
