Dead Man’s Folly by Agatha Christie

Hello Peoples! I’ve been re-reading a few of Agatha Christie’s books and, I must say, I do believe they are better the second time around! Is that even possible???πŸ˜‰πŸ§

Ariadne Oliver telephones Poirot insisting he travel to her location and help her. She is unable to tell him, on the phone, why she needs him, there are too many people listening. Georges packs a bag for Poirot and off he goes. He travels by train to Nasse House, Nassecombe. When he arrives, Ariadne tells Poirot there is to be a fete and she has arranged a Murder Hunt. There are clues, suspects and a victim. It’s similar to a scavenger hunt, but it’s a Murder Hunt. She tells Poirot, something doesn’t feel right. Something is wrong and she can sense it. She tells Poirot she wouldn’t be surprised if there is a real murder, instead of a fake murder. Poirot believes her! So! The day of the fete has arrived, everyone is having a good time ~ you guessed it ~ a body is discovered. She’s been murdered!

I loved it! I almost read it straight through! Agatha Christie created the best puzzles! Even though I had read it once before I wasn’t sure the identity of that nefarious person. According to my note, I read this book in 2012. Ok. It’s been a while. I love Ariadne. She’s smart, creative, eccentric and she has good instincts. She’s also fun. Poirot did solve the mystery. Highly recommend!

Happy Reading!

  1. I think they can be better the second time through! This just shows her ability to write a great story. I haven’t read this one, but hope to get to it one day. πŸ™‚
