More twists and turns than a maze!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Towards Zero (Agatha Christie Collection) (Paperback)
This is story features one of Agatha Christie's lesser known detectives, Superintendent Battle who is in five of Agatha Christie's novels.
Althought this story starts off slowly it builds up pace after the first dead body turns up.
Christie manages to build up the suspense and distrust. After the first death is put down to a bad heart you know that there is more to it than is being said.
As you make your way to the end the story is filled with red herrings and twists so that when I finally got to the reason behind the murder I was totally surprised. The Motive behind the murder has to be one of Agatha Christie's most evil and most impressive. And even though it's not one of the best Agatha Christie it is one to be read again!
