Read in January, 2005

This is beyond a doubt the very first book I read in 2005, since I finished it at about five in the morning on New Year's Day. It's very much standard Christie fare - the kind of book you can read without terribly much concentration.

It's not one of her better works (though I don't think any of them will ever equal The Murder of Roger Akroyd for me), but it definitely features a lot of her standard features - a wealthy woman surrounded by a large number heirs who all have their reasons for doing away with her; a large and somewhat dilapidated country house; a slightly Gothic murder scene; and Miss Marple solving the crime thanks to her understanding of human nature. I'd figured out whodunnit by about five chapters in it, but Christie always reaches her denouement with such class that it hardly matters.
