Before this year I had only read one book by the famous Agatha Christie, a span of nearly six decades, but over the last twelve months I have read about fifteen of her books. If that doesn’t tell you that I have become a major, yet belated, fan I guess nothing will. The previous fifteen books all had the great character, Hercule Poirot, as the detective in charge. A repeating character unlike any character I have encountered by any previous author, simply amazing. “Ordeal by Innocence” does not have the famous detective in it, but have no fear I enjoyed this book as much as any of the other books. Ms. Christie is a master story teller and this book had me riveted to the story and characters as much as any of her works. Like I have been accustomed to saying, if one has any interest in writing mysteries, one could learn a lot just by becoming a student and avid reader of her works.41Th88dvt+L._SX373_BO1,204,203,200_
