I read all Agatha Christies in my local library by the time I was 12, and then didn't touch them for a very long time again. Now it's been one or two a year, but this is the first non-classical Christie I remember reading.
Nor a murder story but a thriller. I guess a thriller? The era for writing them was perfect, however Christie is a bit unusual in thrillers. Much dialogue and talk over dinner tables and details on who's wearing what and who knows whom. If only Christie had read a few Ludlums... (hmm - I guess logistical problem here as Ludlum only started with his first books around the time this was written, so it would have been quite impossible to pick his style from the books that were to be written at least 5 years after this book was published).
In the end there is murder too.
Not bad. Even though I love my thrillers to be Ludlum-action-packed, I can't not like a Christie.
