This is one of the books taken with me on vacation and enjoyed on the beach with the sand on my feet and the surf in my ears. Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors and after reading most of her books, this is my favorite story!! I highly recommend it. It is immensely entertaining in her manner of writing and has a completely surprising ending. One of those stories that make a person dwell on the plot long after the book is finished. If you enjoy mysteries and of course Agatha Christie...this is a MUST read.
