Only for Christie
on 9 February 2013
If she wrote this book at the beginning of her career, Mrs. Christie would be forgotten by now. But remembering The Secret Adversary (The first Tommy/Tuppence thriller and what a grand book that is!); this is a pale shadow. But still a Tommy and Tuppence, ageing fast like their creator and will soon be followed by the last one: Postern of Fate, even less memorable than this one.
A word about these 'facsimile editions', they are really not. The shape/the shade of color are all different. Come on, Harper Collins editors, at least make them exactly like the originals, that's what facsimile means.
