Note: I listened to the audiobook for the majority of this book, so I may have missed some minor content issues.
What a fantastic book! Filled with memorable, likable characters and an intriguing plot, it’s now one of my favorite Agatha Christie books! I didn’t suspect the villain and every plot twist held me captive. The plot was seamlessly woven and well-written. Fast-paced and enthralling, the action only stopped to make room for the sweet, classy, slow burn romance. The intensity was alleviated by bits of humor. A good mystery can hold the reader’s attention without unnecessary gore, and this adventure did just that. Although I was slightly doubtful that I would love the Young Adventurers as much as the sophisticated Belgian and his little grey cells, but I ended up enjoying the book immensely. This is definitely an Agatha Christie series I’ll return to.
