Maybe 3.5 stars.

This was, I'm sad to say, incredibly patchy. I started out disposed to like the thing. Really, for a post-WWI culture, Anne is remarkably modern and likable... until you find out her real reasons for "going all feminist" and heading out on her own with no male or female companions, trying to make her own way in the world. Suzanne Blair I didn't like until she suddenly was giving her impulsive friend all the advice she should have been following. And Harry... well, compared to Race, he wasn't really all that interesting(even with the backstory). Sir Eustace was rather amusing but absolutely maddening at the same time.

There were so many twists and turns and, by the end, I was doubly frustrated because Christie, who is usually so good at the "Chekhov's gun" principle seemed to get stuck and add in off-the-cuff solutions. And she doesn't do adventure, Tarzan-esque romance well. I'm sure that if I had read this pre-Poirot or -Marple, that I'd be mildly amused. But, since I know what she's capable of I was sadly disappointed. So the issue is probably my overly-high expectations.

Edit: Just discovered that it was apparently a magazine serial story. That explains the patchy-ness. ( )

I felt a little lost on this one, even though I usually like Agatha Christie. The plot was confusing ( )

Enh. I don't like Christie in "spy thriller" mode as much as in mystery mode – although this did have a mystery, with an interesting solution – and the sexual politics in this one just flat out revolt me. And it is of it today and of its social class in its discussion of Rhodesia in the 1920s. Since it's counted as part of a "Colonel Race" series, and I really liked Cards on the Table, I had hoped to like this better than I did. ( )

A very fun read - much more of a thriller than a conventional mystery. ( )

My journey in the mysteries of Agatha Christie continues with The Man in the Brown Suit. This falls under the Colonel Race series and involves so many characters playing multiple parts that I felt lost at times. When her father dies, Anne Beddingfeld decides that she must live and take chances. First a man falls to his death at the train station in front of her, then a man in a brown suit stating he is a doctor examines the fallen man. Anne retrieves a slip of paper the man in the brown suit drops and thus begins her sleuthing. Anne then finds a canister of undeveloped film at Mill House where a woman has been killed. Anne quickly books passage on the ship, Kilmorden Castle, bound for Africa. As usual, Agatha Christie supplies many charming and alarming characters. Anne encounters an attempt to throw her overboard and a kidnapping but prevails in these adventures. The style fringes on light banter between the characters and danger seems distant. Anne narrates half of the story and Sir Eustace Pedler’s diary details the remaining story, an interesting approach to the narrative. This lacks the forcefulness of Poirot. ( )
