This Agatha Christie mystery follows the pattern of her earlier titles The Secret Adversary and, more recently, The Man in the Brown Suit. Like those books, this one features, more or less, a detective couple: a man with a good background who's ready for danger and a young, intelligent woman who seeks excitement and adventure. Our antagonist is a master criminal (in this case, a jewel thief) in disguise. We know that he's one of the main players, but we don't know which one.
(view spoiler) Though there is a murder (actually a political assassination) or two and a missing diamond, both of those mysteries takes backseat to the real secret of Chimneys: (view spoiler)

It was fairly suspenseful and rather fun to read. One thing to note: the novel did not resemble the recent Masterpiece Mystery episode at all.
