Kerrie - Thanks, as ever, for this review. I'm so glad you brought up the way Christie shows us what Elinor is thinking and how she perceives what happens. I found that aspect of the book especially compelling during the courtroom scenes. I also liked the way we see Mary Gerrard's character unfold through what people say about her.

This is a Christie book that is always thought of as one of her best. I suppose it is but it has never been one of mine. I mean, I like it, I've read it several times, but...However, great review. It reminded me I haven't read the book in years.

I do remember liking Mary Gerrard and wishing she hadn't been bumped off. Maybe that's what turned me against the book.
