My rating: 3 of 5 stars

One of the books I purchased on my recent visit to Hay-on-Wye.

I've not read many Agatha Christie books previously, though I've watched lots of Poirot and Miss Marple on TV. I wasn't very taken with this book, though the hotel itself is intriguing and I liked the way she evoked the period. Odd to think that I was visiting London myself during the mid-60 when the book was set, and yet now it reads like a period piece. Signs of getting old!

Miss Marple had very little to do, to be honest and I didn't find the murder terribly convincing.
