'A model detective story, there is never a dull moment.' The Times 'The suspense is agonising.' Daily Mail 'Miraculously fresh from a vintage pen.' Sunday Dispatch 'Without the female of the species, indeed, detective fiction would be in a bad way. Miss Christie never harrows her readers, being content to intrigue and amuse them.' Times Literary Supplement 'The great mistress of the last-minute switch is at it again... even the experts have given up any attempts to out-guess Miss Christie.' New Yorker 'Precisely what one expects: the most delicious bamboozling possible in a babble of bright talk and a comprehensive bristle of suspicion all adeptly managed to keep you much too alert elsewhere to see the neat succession of clues that catch a murderer we never so much as thought of.' New York Herald Tribune --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
