I have read 4.50 from Paddington. It was a good quick read with enough enthralling plot twists till the very end.

I never doubted about the killer to be the doctor, this book has fooled me to be honest. The way of chaining the events was mesmerizing if I can say. I loved , actually I adored the young lady. The story is about a woman at a train. She saw a man strangling a woman from the window and no one believed her,so she decides to ask for help from a young lady. Most of the events took place at a house within a big family.

Marple and Christie with a really good detective yarn. It was some years since I last read this and I'd forgotten a lot. Lucy Eylesbarrow was an interesting character and it's a shame we didn't read about her again. Great story.

4.50 From Paddington:-

An elderly woman on the train sees a man in another train running parallel throttling a woman to death, while he is oblivious to her watching - his back is to the window. She is thouroughly traumatised, and reports it as soon as she can at a railway station. But there is no dead woman on any train or a dead body dumped near any tracks anywhere possible where a parallel running train at that time could have stopped.

And yet - she is sure, she saw the murder taking place,

I don't always know where I get my ideas about authors. I had the feeling that Agatha Christie was a boring sensationalist knockoff of Conan Doyle: I imagine it had something to do with her picture, which is precisely not what you want your mystery author to look like, and the names of her heroes, which sounded to me to be either an attempt at being too comic or at being too serious.
She turned out to be exactly right. She gets rid of all the little irritations of Sherlock Holmes: the police are

Read this after someone mentioned on blog that they always read this title around Christmas. I loved Dame Agatha when I was younger and read mostly the mysteries solved by Inspector Hercule Poirot. Enjoyed this book as it featured Miss Jane Marple an entirely different detective solving a murder happening around Christmas. It read very quickly and is a fun read during the holidays for a shorter attention span (which I now have until Decmber 26th). ost of a miserable family gets ...more
