A wonderful book, with a most unexpected ending!
The patriot of a big family dies, and everyone in his family is a suspect. The son of the police investigator wants to marry one of the children, but she doesn’t want to unless the murderer is found. This novel is short but incredibly fast-paced, and probably the closest thing Christie came to a thriller.
It features all the usual Christie-specialities such as weird and interesting characters.
If you love cozy mysteries, you’ll adore this book!
