Customer ReviewsSee All
This was an enjoyable read with a great twist in the end. My criticism on this edition of the book is that important plot points are WRITTEN IN ALL CAPS, which can be very distracting and corny.
Agatha Christie is the go to for a good mystery novel
She never disappoints. Whenever I want a good mystery novel, I can always open an Agatha Christie’s.
Witty dialogue with great suspense
It was a good story with lots of suspense, witty repartee between Thomas and Tuppance, and many surprises. I enjoyed it very much.
