My favorite fiction author is Agatha Christie. Josephine Tey is not going to take her place, but offers me a source of entertainment since I’ve read everything written by Christie including those under her pen name Mary Westmacott.

A murder mystery is all about the ending and resolution. This one is not completely satisfying, the murderer came out of nowhere. Agatha Christie always gave some hints in order for the reader to think we can figure it out, even though we never succeed because of twists and turns. That’s a good murder mystery.

This one is ok. I did pique my interest enough to stay up reading it. I would read another one by Tey if I can find it in the library. I bought this one from Thriftbooks, and will now donate it to Goodwill.

That counts as 2 books read in August.
