Christie called it “the best opening I ever wrote” (Life, 1956). The Times Literary Supplement said “Some devoted souls may sigh for Hercule Poirot but there are bound to be others who will be glad to find his place taken in the ‘new Agatha Christie’ by Miss Marple. What this relief signifies is that professional detectives are no match for elderly spinsters.”
