'The best of its kind I have met for a long time. It is remarkable especially for a brand new device for concealing the villain's identity to the very end. I defy the most practiced hand to discover him.' New Statesman 'Its action maintains a swiftness of pace we have never seen surpassed.' Saturday Review of Literature 'Even the most experienced reader will fail to steer an unerring course and reach the harbour of solution through the quicksands and shoals of blood, diamonds, secret service, impersonation, kidnapping, and violence with which the mystery is guarded.' Times Literary Supplement

What follows is more of an adventure than the enterprising Anne could ever have dreamed of when she was tucked away in the quiet countryside. Some of the people Anne meets are certainly not who they appear to be and, before events have sorted themselves out, she will be kidnapped, nearly murdered (more than once!), face criminal gangs, find love and unearth the mysterious 'Colonel'. An excellent introduction to Christie if you haven't tried her books before. Sit back, relax and let the best mystery writer who ever put pen to paper take you on an adventure...
The plot is fantastic. Mystery and intrigue starts immediately in the prologue and then in chapter one we are introduced to the feisty heroine Anne who will be the main character in the book. She may be an orphan but once she sets off on her adventure you want to be Anne. The story is full of action, mystery and romance. You won't want to put it down once you start it, it keeps you guessing all the way to the end. I won't go into the plot but will simply say if you love Agatha Christie or just love an easy going, full of non stop fun mystery then get this. You will not be disappointed. I must have read it at least twenty times.

Caveat emptor! Be aware that this is a hardback comic book. Buried deep within the description is something about a 'graphic' book. Read morePublished 4 months ago by K C.
