One of Christie's short stories that reminds me why I don't care for short stories - they're too short. In fact, it was so short, I had to go back a read the ending again - where did people and the situation tie in together? This was a story line could have been drawn out with a few more twists and turns.

My Rating System:
* couldn't finish, ** wouldn't recommend, *** would recommend, **** would read again, ***** have read again.

I enjoyed the characters, and their world and hope I get the chance to read the story again and/or to read more within the series.
