Review: Sad Cypress

Sad Cypress
Sad Cypress by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Elinor Carlisle finds herself charged with the murder of Mary Gerrard, a girl who was her rival in love. Elinor maintains her innocence, but the facts all seem to point to her guilt: Mary died in Elinor’s home, after eating food Elinor had prepared, and Elinor certainly had a motive to kill Mary. Can Hercule Poirot shed any light on the mystery of who killed Mary, and why?

The usual Christie red herrings are in evidence here, as well as a reference to one of Poirot’s earlier adventures (short story “The Dream.”) I found Sad Cypress thoroughly enjoyable, and it kept me guessing as to the killer’s identity.
