This book is very well written and kept my interest nicely. it wasn't a really scary mystery. it was short and the ending made me laugh. I really wasn't expecting what happened until the very end. If you're looking for a quick fun read, you will enjoy this book.

I very nearly solved it...nearly. The conclusion was a little bit convoluted, but still very enjoyable. Definitely recommend listening to this one, if for no other reason than Christopher Lee has the greatest voice, which positively vibrates through you.

Clever short story from Christie. Once again she gives you only the details you need then puts you right into the action where you must keep up till the end. What a great storyteller!

Short and good

This is a very short story, but it has the typical Agatha Christie twist at the end! I enjoyed it.
