This review is from: The Secret of Chimneys (Agatha Christie Signature Edition) (Paperback)
Fans of Christie's mature mysteries might be disappointed, as this is more of a comedy spy thriller than a classic who-dunnit. However, as a period piece it is fascinating, and while the writer has clearly been influenced by PG Wodehouse, we can see the seeds of Christie's later skilful characterisation developing in such memorable creations as Virginia Revel. If you can suspend disbelief and think yourself back into the non-p.c.world of the British Empire of the 1920s, you are in for an escapist treat.
