Format: Mass Market Paperback
I enjoyed this book both as a great depiction of England between the wars as well as a mystery. Unlike some of Dame Agatha's other works, here I genuinely was kept in suspense till the end as to the identity of the criminal. But even more interesting was the characters who make their second appearance after "The Secret of Chimneys" which was also entertaining, but less suspenseful. I loved reading about the adventures of Lord Caterham and Bundle again, both of whom are as funny and sharp as ever. I would definitely recommend the book to even those Christie fans who only prefer Poirot and Miss Marple mysteries - it's good enough to stand on its own.

There are some Agatha Christie books when the plot idea is so farcical and unbelievable that you can't quite believe that you're reading it.
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 is the sequel to The Secret of Chimneys although the main characters from that story don't feature you do have Bundle, Billy and George as well as Superintendent Battle.
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

Although preposterous in places, this story moves at a good pace and is a real page turner. Christie revisits the setting and characters she introduced in 'The Secret of Chimneys'. It has the slight larkiness of her early novels, before she seemed to be able to take herself seriously as a mystery writer in her great classics like 'And then There Were None'. This edition is attractively produced with a clear typeface which makes reading a pleasure.

Like the Mystery of Chimneys ( which features several of the same characters) this marvellous, somewhat Wodhousian romp is scarcely recognisable as a Christie. It's a wonderful spoof on the adventure stories of the time, fast moving and extremely funny. I couldn't put it down, and felt quite bereft when I'd finished it. In fact, I could almost contemplate starting it again, and I seldom re-read a title -- life is too short. Forget the Poirots (often badly written); if Agatha were still with us I should cry: more like this please!

I am an avid Agatha Christie but found this book disappointing. I couldn't relate to the characters and the plot confused me. When all was revealed, instead of the usual light bulb moment when, there was just disbelief. It was readable but no more.

This is a great book. Sometimes some of Agatha Christie's novels get a bit boring, but this one is Agatha Christie at her best! I found this book really good. The suspense is unbearable at times, but thats what makes this book really good. I really like Agatha Christie's books, but this has got to be one of the best!

A classic Christie. If you are a fan (as I am) all of her stories are fabulous. Many people say her storylines are predictable but maybe that is part of the charm although I do only narrow it down to two or three people and there is often a nice little twist at the end.
