Bookshelf: Crooked House by Agatha Christie

Sunday, April 26, 2020
This is the second book that is in my B&N Collectible Edition of Agatha Christie stories, so now I'm two-thirds the way through it. This book is very much like Clue, except we know the weapon. So I spent a lot of time trying to figure out, along with the lead character, who the true murderer was. I did not see the true identity coming. I was detecting right alongside the lead character, and all of my theories were wrong. And that's the fun of a whodunnit. It should surprise you and come out of left field, but not so far out that you can't buy it. You can buy the identity of this murderer and why they did it.

It's hard to talk about a book where the mystery is a whodunnit because you don't want to reveal who did it if you want other people to read it. So, if you like playing Clue or watching the movie Clue, or liked Knives Out, you'll like this.
