More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

Product Description

Review

‘Her gift is pure genius.’ Observer

‘An amusing, exciting, well-written story.’ Outlook

‘All signs indicate that Mrs Christie has been reading P.G. Wodehouse, and she does it very well in spots. This is her gayest thriller and mustn’t be missed.’ Books

Book Description

When a practical joke played on Gerry Wade involving alarm clocks turns out to be murder the case is taken up by Lady 'Bundle' Brent and Jimmy Thesiger. Trying to work out the significance of the seven clocks found at the murder scene, they come across the Seven Dials Club. However, it seems that the nightclub is also the headquarters of a secret society.

To track down the murderer Bundle must first decide just whose side the members of the society are on.

I enjoyed this book both as a great depiction of England between the wars as well as a mystery. Unlike some of Dame Agatha's other works, here I genuinely was kept in suspense till the end as to the identity of the criminal. But even more interesting was the characters who make their second appearance after "The Secret of Chimneys" which was also entertaining, but less suspenseful. I loved reading about the adventures of Lord Caterham and Bundle again, both of whom are as funny and sharp as ever. I would definitely recommend the book to even those Christie fans who only prefer Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries - it's good enough to stand on its own.

Format: Paperback
There are some Agatha Christie books when the plot idea is so farcical and unbelievable that you can't quite believe that you're reading it.
The Seven Dials Mystery is such a book but somehow it comes over as one of the most entertaining and readable of all her books.
As I say the plot here is slightly ludicrous, a mixture of upper class English life and international crime rings should make for uncomfortable partners and yet Christie manages to mix them in perfect amounts. During a visit to the ancestral home of Lady Eileen Brent, tragedy strikes Jimmy Thesiger and his group of friends when one of them is killed in the night after being poisoned. The only clue to the mystery is the 7 alarm clocks left on the victims bedstead and when days later another one of the group of friends is shot dead his final words whispered to Lady Eileen of "Seven Dials" seems to take on new significance.
Lady Eileen, or Bundle as she's more commonly known and Jimmy take on the task to track down the secret society the meets in the run down east end of London and guided by Superintendant Battle of Scotland Yard they're soon running into various close shaves and scrapes.
As silly as the plot sometimes seems the characters are so entertaining that you easily forgive the jumps of logic. Bundle is a joy to read about and the verbal fencing between her and her father Lord Caterham is fabulous. All in all a great Agatha Christie novel that should delight fans of hers and readers in general.

This is the sequel to The Secret of Chimneys although the main characters from that story don't feature you do have Bundle, Billy and George as well as Superintendent Battle.
This story starts with a practical joke that turns tragic when the intended victim is found dead, things don't add and then another member from the weekend ends up dead in another accident. Bundle takes action and starts looking into things, this leads to another weekend party and more intriguing incidents that lead up to another weekend party where then is a twist in the tale!
No Poirot or Marple but still a good story. Well read by Emilia Fox

Format: Audio CD
A good story for those who enjoy flappers, old country houses and murder.
Regrettably the narration was awful, while Emilia Fox is a delightful actress
her ability to convey the male characters on this CD was quite dreadful.
I listen to many Audio books read by a huge range of actors and actresses
The ability of some readers ie Martin Jarvis, Joan Hickson and Hugh Fraser
make one forget completely their own gender as they have a wonderful
way of taking on the sex of the character they are portraying making it
seem that you have a full cast acting out the story.
Perhaps as she ages Emilia Fox will take on this wonderful ability

Although preposterous in places, this story moves at a good pace and is a real page turner. Christie revisits the setting and characters she introduced in 'The Secret of Chimneys'. It has the slight larkiness of her early novels, before she seemed to be able to take herself seriously as a mystery writer in her great classics like 'And then There Were None'. This edition is attractively produced with a clear typeface which makes reading a pleasure.

This is a great book. Sometimes some of Agatha Christie's novels get a bit boring, but this one is Agatha Christie at her best! I found this book really good. The suspense is unbearable at times, but thats what makes this book really good. I really like Agatha Christie's books, but this has got to be one of the best!

I read many of Christie's books many years ago and am periodically working my way through them again. I have to read them in order - that's just my preference. This one is okay without being anything special.
