Ordeal by Innocence

Ordeal-by-innocence-book-cover“Ordeal by Innocence” by Agatha Christie
Mystery – 2 stars

I hate giving the great Agatha Christie a 2 star review – she’s provided me with so much joy over the years! But Ordeal by Innocence is not her best work. A convicted murderer is found to be not-guilty and the hunt is on to find out whodunnit, but the characters are not well fleshed out and some of them are quite unbelievable. I mainly finished the book to get it over with.

That being said, there was more than one reference to the Lizzie Borden case of Massachusetts. It was nice to see a local story make it into an Agatha Christie book, gruesome as it is.
