rereading this after many years; Agatha Christie is always worth reading, and I like this story - lots of good misdirections and thought processes from Poirot and Hastings!
This book is in a way quite different from the other Christie books that I've read. The major part of this book is more on the profiling side. The story starts with a letter sent to Poriot challenging him about his ability to solve mystery crimes. Then series of murders occured after each letter which leads the police and Poriot to think if there was a cold-blood murder who kill for fun and not for personal gain. During the course of inverstigation, various people of interest were intrduced and gathered together in the effort of catching the killer. However, Poriot asked the most important question right from the start and in the end it did prove that his haunch was correct.
I always enjoy reading Chrstie's novels since they always allows to do my own detective work along with it. I had a great time reading this book and was pround to say that I solve the mystery too.
PUò ESSERE GIALLO, PUò ESSERE NOIR, PUò ESSERE UNA IDEALE COMMISTIONE DI GENERI.
IL SEGNO DI QUANTO FOSSE GRANDE AGATHA CHRISTIE.
Ah, perhaps this was the one dependent upon knowledge of bridge. I will have to re-read these mysteries as I have forgotten why I abandoned these.
