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 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
