Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not The Best This book is okay, but far from my favourite. I find it somewhat of a struggle to get into (and finish). Not Christie's best work.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Love Agatha Christie. But she should stick to what she knows. This book makes little use of its setting. Some parts were quite ethnocentric and anachronistic. The murder was pretty obvious to me, but the reveal was still interesting. Not her best and not really recommended unless you are a diehard Christie completionist.
