Double sin and other stories. - Agatha Christie

Another Agatha Christie polished off. I realised that I'd read this one before, but enjoyed it again nevertheless.

This also had a couple of short stories which didn't feature Poirot or Miss Marple, which were good all the same.

That reminded me of one of her Mary Westmaccot books I'd read years ( just checked up , it was Absent in the spring) which also impressed me a lot. There's something about the way she writes, it not just the plots, mysteries or her characters, it also about how with simple straightforward english, sans any long winded boring descriptions, she can evoke a great deal of atmosphere in a situation.

Now on to another book.. tv is out of my control now!
