Crooked House – Agatha Christie

Delving into the crime lover’s favourite, Crooked House, one of Agatha Christie’s less well known novels, will leave any bloodthirsty reader satisfied.

The Queen of Crime, Christie has nailed it again with the most unexpected twist I’ve ever seen in such a crime novel.

Two lovers who want to break family norm.

One death which splits them apart.

One twist which changes their lives forever.

While reading this novel, my perception of the murderer was constantly changing. Christie has done a fantastic job at hiding the true murderer to who we least expect. It is this suspense which makes reading this novel such an unusual experience – who do you think it is?  The connections aren’t as crooked as they may seem.

8/10
