Headline 'Optional', but required!

Narration good, but story too involved with occult trends, with very little action or intrigue requiring the use of brain cells. Normally a fan of Start a Christie's work, but not this time.

Christie at her best

Short story or not, this is an example of how Christie is one of the best. It is up there with Conan Doyle, James and Wells.
