The mystery begins with a round table séance where a spirit announces that Captain John Trevelyan has been murdered. A heavy snowstorm makes travel difficult, but Major John Edward Burnaby insists on walking to Trevelyan’s cottage to check the verity of the spirit. A man, James Pearson, is arrested for the murder. Pearson’s fiancé, Miss Emily Trefusis, grabs the bull by the horns and attempts to prove that Pearson has been framed. Agatha Christie delights in presenting female sleuths that outwit the criminal. These women solve murder: Anne Beddington in The Man in the Brown Suit, Kathleen Gray assists Poirot in The Mystery of the Blue Train, and Lady Eileen “Bundle” Brent assists Superintendent Battle in The Seven Dials Mystery. Emily weasels the assistance of many men in her quest to find the killer, but her antics delight the reader. I am fascinated with Christie’s names—where does she find these names? Also, in almost every story, people enter a house through the window—is this an English oddity? ( )

It's weird for me to dislike Christie books, but this one did nothing for me. It was a struggle to finish. I think the main issue was that I just found the why behind who murdered an eccentric and misogynistic man (Captain Trevelyan) to be boring due to one of the main character we follow through most of the book.

Captain Trevelyan is found murdered after a weird seance tells the group who is holding it that he is dead. Trevelyan's long time friend and neighbor Major Burnaby goes to his home during a heavy snow and finds Trevelyan dead. Trevelyan's will leaves things to his sister and to his niece and two nephews. Questions quickly emerge about was it one of Trevelyan's family members that finally did him in for their inheritance.

I was more interested when we had Inspector Narricot investigating things. He reminded me a lot of Poirot in his thinking, but the way he acted with people reminded me of Superintendent Battle. When Christie switched over to the fiancee of a man suspected of the murder (Emily) I just didn't care anymore.

Christie tried to throw some romance via Emily and two men during the course of the book, but in the end Emily chooses the one who I considered to be a waste. This is a common theme in Christie books though. She always has the bright young thing seemingly throwing her life away on some man that is not perfect since she will bring him up to scratch.

I also didn't like how we get the perspective of the person who murdered Trevelyan but with a cheat (you don't know that you are not getting the full picture until the end). Usually it seems so obvious when Christie reveals the who and the why since she props up clues along the way. This book felt very muddled to me. ( )

A classic-era mystery by one of the world’s most praised and revered mystery writers. First published in 1931, it was a stand-alone tale (no Poirot and his little grey cells! No Marple and her knitting!) of crimes thought buried rising up from their unmarked graves to feed, zombie-like, on the perpetrators in the present day. Sadly, the whole world they inhabit gets to suffer along with the perpetrators; after all, crime doesn’t pay so much as it pays back. The setting of a snowbound country house with bored wealthy guests is chilly enough. When the pieces of the criminal puzzle start coming apart (or together, depending on your perspective), the emotional chills go from the fridge to the freezer.

What an awful place to live in England is...If it isn't snowing or raining or blowing it's misty. And if the sun does shine it's so cold that you can't feel your fingers or toes.

By the time you’ve finished this modest-in-scope (288 pages) novel, you’re unlikely to feel your fingers for a few hours. Though in this case it will be from gripping the darn thing so tight in sheer desperation to see why anyone would kill the victim, shifting to a desperate need to know what took someone so long to kill the bastard. $9.99 for the Kindle edition.

This is not one of the better known Christie novels, featuring neither Hercule Poirot not Miss Marple, but this gives an opportunity for other characters to breathe and take centre stage, especially in this case Emily Trefusis, girlfriend of the main suspect to this mysterious murder. In the isolated settlement of Sittaford on Dartmoor on a snowy winter night a seance takes place, in which a "spirit" announces the murder of the non-present owner of the house, a Captain Trevelyan. It emerged that he had in fact been murdered at the same time. The eventual solution turns out to be anything but paranormal, relying on, in my view, a rather unconvincing means of rapid travel. The Inspector investigating the crime is sharp enough, but lacking the intuition of Miss Trefusis who, as the sharpest tool in the whole box, gets to the solution first. There is an interesting set of characters and even a Dickensian-style convict escaped on the Moor situation. A good read, though as I say, I didn't find the resolution very satisfactory. ( )

Major Burnaby drew on his gum boots, buttoned his overcoat collar round his neck, took from a shelf near the door a hurricane lantern, and cautiously opened the front door of his little bungalow and peered out.
