The actual murder event was ever so discreet, tucked in between two paragraphs in plain sight that will always be missed on an initial read. Find showtimes, watch trailers, browse photos, track your Watchlist and rate your favorite movies and TV shows on your phone or tablet! There was a suggestion in all this as of a trap—a trap that had closed.
The Collins first edition of was Christie’s first work placed with that publisher. I wouldn’t be surprised if she wrote a book where I was the killer. Ah, please to forgive me. Another case of an Agatha Christie novel that just blows me away so much at the end that I have to rate it 5 stars.
