Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A baffler of the first water, written in Agatha Christie’s best manner. It seems to us the very best thing she has done, not even excepting Roger Ackroyd.New York Times
“Mrs. Christie has invented an entirely new plot for a detective story—a difficult thing in these days; she is to be congratulated on the perfection of her invention.” Times (London)
“An entirely original idea.” Daily Telegraph (London)
“Agatha Christie at her best.” New York Herald Tribune
“Her best yet. Where does she get hold of these brilliant notions?” Bristol Evening Post (England)
“More disturbing than the alphabetic sequence of the killings or the ABC Railway guide that the killer leaves at the scene of each crime are the taunting notes Hercule Poirot receives each time the killer is about to strike again. It is one of Poirot’s most challenging cases yet.” Library Journal
“Hercule Poirot comes out of his retirement, enticed to the chase by a series of anonymous letters, each one prophesying a murder in a certain town on a certain date. He fails—for four times—then the net tightens.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
