Postern of Fate - Agatha Christie

"All those clues," said Andrew, "You could make a story out of them - even a book."

"Too many names, too complicated," said Deborah, "who would read a book like that?"


"You'd be surprised," said Tommy, "what people will read - and enjoy."


I am coming to the end of Christie, and it is bittersweet. Postern of Fate is not good, but I can't help but feel a sense of melancholy and awe for Dame Agatha's accomplishment. In a way, it's fitting that this was her last book.
