Last week, I was getting through a book a day, mostly crime novels. I’ve never been a great fan of Agatha Christie but who could resist two bags of her books in those editions with facsimile covers for £5.00? Not me, for sure. They are all Poirot stories and those I read most recently are: Peril at End House; Cards on the Table; Death in the Clouds and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. Death in the Clouds was by far the best and also had the prettiest cover. I couldn’t enjoy The Murder of Roger Ackroyd as much as I might have done because, although I hadn’t read it before, I already knew, just from general reading, what the twist at the end would be.
