Another light, fun read from Agatha Christie. The book manages to surprise and there's the characteristic droll humour. I didn't much care for the social hierarchies but to Christie's credit, she shows that anyone can be an idiot, whether high class or not. I especially liked the little parting shot with Raymond Starr in the end. Interesting characters, quip-worthy dialogue and an engaging plot that doesn't taper down even until the last page - the book lives up to what it promises and that's more than many others do.
