English In this novel, Agatha Christie does what she does best: assembles a group of diverse characters on holiday, has one of them murdered, and provides the rest with plenty of opportunity and motive to have committed the crime. Arlena Marshall is a beautiful woman known for her affairs with men, both before and during her marriage. While on holiday at the Jolly Roger Hotel on England's South Coast, she openly cavorts with Patrick Redfern while her husband and his wife watch helplessly. Tragedy is inevitable and few are surprised when Arlena is murdered. What sets Christie apart from other mystery writers is the wonderful skill she exhibits with characterizations. This novel, one of her best in my opinion, is complete with many well-developed ones which make for a believable crime.

I thought I had it figured out, almost put the book down because of the fact it seemed so obvious. The only reason I continued is because I know Agatha Christie is anything but predictable. Let's just say there's a nice surprise for you at the end and you definitely won't expect it. I can honestly say she never disappoints. I prefer her writing to modern mysteries any day.
It also is not a Poirot or Marple mystery, for those wondering. Kindle Edition Verified download.
This a review of Agatha Christie's "Sparkling Cyanide. I'm sorry for the confusion. Agatha Christie wrote a dozen "stand-alone" mysteries that feature neither Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. They're largely overlooked, which is a shame.
Some of them are among her best books. I don't think this one rates that highly, but it's a good read. It has more romance than most of her books and I think Christie generally handled romance very awkwardly.
But this book has several interesting couples married and single and the author's insights into what drives their relationships is a fascinating look into her own experiences and what they taught her. It starts out slowly, so you'll have to be patient, but I think it's worth it. This book was published in , but it's set in pre-war London. There's some talk of espionage and armaments, but the war that almost destroyed England is ignored.
The players are all ladies and gentlemen although their behavior is not always exemplary.
Only one has a job. The rest are either independently wealthy, married to wealth, or own their own businesses. No one here is standing in line at the grocery store or walking to save bus fare.
Rosemary Marle Barton is the quintessential society lady. Beautiful, seductive,and self-centered, she married an older man with little to recommend him but his good-natured devotion. And she didn't marry him for the obvious reason since she inherited a large fortune of her own. She married nice, dull George Barton because she wanted to be "safe and taken care of. Seems improbable to me, but then when she finds a man she DOES want, she's ready to abandon her marriage with no remorse.
So maybe it makes sense. In 's London, divorce was no longer particularly shocking. Easy come, easy go.
Having fallen deeply in love, Rosemary inexplicably commits suicide at her birthday party at a luxurious restaurant. Her husband is crushed, her younger sister who inherits her money is stunned, and the man with whom she was planning to elope is secretly relieved. But which man was it? There are enough cliches in this book to fill a football stadium. There's the dull, stolid businessman, the flirtatious, self-absorbed society beauty, the secretary in love with her boss, the obscure politician who's gained prominence and power by way of a shrewd marriage, there's the elderly widow who dithers mindlessly and her ne'er-do-well son, and there's a mystery man of whom nothing is known except the obvious - that he's good-looking, charming, and well-financed.
The plot pivots around the death of Rosemary Barton.
Would a beautiful, wealthy, selfish young woman kill herself in such a painful way, even if she was suffering rejection for the first time in her life? The police are satisfied with the suicide verdict, but her widower has other ideas. And he's determined to do his own detective work. Christie never met a red herring she didn't like and she throws several into this story. And yet, as she always did, she supplies all the clues. But which is which?
At one point, I was convinced that two mystery men were the same person. Was that Ms. Christie's intention or was I over-thinking the whole thing? Christie was a craftswoman who recognized her own limitations and stuck to her strengths.
Her only goal was to write books people would enjoy reading. I think she succeeded with this one. Another of my favorite Christies.
Like I said in another review, Christie does very well groups of people, be they family Crooked House or fellow travelers Murder on the Orient Express. The characters are all individuals. Arlena loves men and men love her - and she sees no reason why just because she's married she shouldn't have some fun. Of course, for Arlena this means flirting - and more. Meanwhile, her taciturn husband - the epitome of the British gentleman - suffers in silence.
