really liked it
bookshelves: mystery, light-hearted

Delightful! I didn't realize that Christie's mysteries had so much humor. While many of the descriptions might read like cliches, in this author's hands, they come across as cleverly amusing. I was curious as to whether Christie was serious about the Red Scare of the 1920s or whether she was making fun of the government's fear of an uprising created by ""Bolshevists." I liked her depiction of fearless, intelligent women and her put-down of any chauvinist remarks! I was pretty certain I knew who Mr. Brown was soon after he appeared on the scene, but not entirely sure. No doubt I made my deduction due to watching Miss Marple and Inspector Poirot solve many mysteries on public television.
