      A great read from the Queen of Crime!

      This is the first book that I ever read by Agatha Christie...obviously I have spent many a Christmas holiday watching the adaption of "Death on the Nile" and "Orient Express" but as any fan of the "Queen of Crime" will tell you until you have read one of her books then you haven't experienced the hypnotic effect her writing produces, I'm sure the term page turner was first used to explain her books. The book is located in the Caribbean and I'm surprised that it has not been made into a film with a star studded cast as it certainly has all the ingredients of a classic Christie murder mystery (there has been TV adaption's)... which won't disappoint you as there are certainly many untimely deaths. This as with all successful Christie novels is macabre and sinister at times and really emphasises her complete understanding of the human mind and condition....this may not be the most famous of novels but in my eyes it really should be considered one of her finer works and is a welcome return a recognised and intricate format!

    As Jane Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finished the story!
