"The Tuesday Club Murders" by Agatha Christie, Review

A casual evening dinner party becomes a night of intrigue when one of the guests suggests that they each present a mystery--preferably one of which she or he has personal knowledge--and let the group try to uncover its solution. This lively proposal yields a plethora of haunting, perplexing tales. Among them are "The Bloodstained pavement," in which an artist finds herself painting an unknown crime scene, and "The Idol House of Astarte," in which a goddess seems to murder a man in full view of his companions. Fortunately for the other guests, Miss Jane Marple is in attendance, ensuring that even the most baffling puzzle will not go unsolved.

Each story in The Tuesday Club Murders is an Agatha Christie gem that will keep you guessing.

My Thoughts: I enjoyed reading this Agatha Christie novel. It is a little different than most of Christies stories, in as much as this book is made up of 13 short stories. Each short story is solved by the end, and of course by Miss Marple. If you enjoy reading Agatha Christie mysteries, I'm sure you will enjoy this one also. I enjoyed the fact that I didn't have to read the whole book to see the mystery solved. I got to see 13 mysteries solved by the end of the book.

I read this book for my "Vintage Mystery Book Challenge." I liked this book and gave it 4****

This book belongs to me, therefore I own it.
