Vigyázat! Cselekményleírást tartalmaz.

In a remote house in the middle of Dartmoor, six shadowy figures huddle around a small round table for a seance. Tension rises as the spirits spell out a chilling message: 'Captain Trevelyan…dead…murder'. Is this black magic or simply a macabre joke? The only way to be certain is to locate Captain Trevelyan. Unfortunately, his home is six miles away and, with snow drifts blocking the roads, someone will have to make the journey on foot…

Agatha Christie: The Sittaford Mystery

Valamikor ajándékba szántam valakinek ezt a könyvet, ám nem volt végül alkalom odaadni. Mégis ajándék lesz belőle, egy nagyon kedves ifjú barátom részére, aki megígérte, hogy örülni fog neki. :)

Honestly, Ms. Christie is not my kind of detective story writer, I much prefer Sir Conan Doyle. Simply because there are so many could be clues, and people just talk-talk-talk and there is so little real investigation & reading the signs going on, and youʼre supposed to read between the lines – but thereʼs actually nothing between the lines, just empty space. And then you end up suspecting everyone, while always the one youʼd kind of suspect the least who the culprit is. So? In the end I started to suspect the right guy (a little bit), simply because I knew this, aaand not by reading between the lines, but because he started behaving so, that you knew that he was deliberately withholding himself not to let a slip of the tongue betray him.

Na szóval. Már látom, A.C. nem lesz soha a kedvencem. Nem annyira jön be, ahogy ő építi fel a történeteit, sok a rizsa, kevés a „nyomozás”. De azért szerintem a klasszikusokat (Orient Expressz, Tíz kicsi néger) egyszer majd sorra fogom keríteni. Egynek, és várólista-csökkentésnek jó volt, ha már néhány éve itt állt a polcomon. És akkor most legyen @Kevin-é, ha már egyszer megkívánta. :)

I know what you're thinking. Like in books there ought to be some little incident that I should remember that would be a clue. Well, I'm sorry, but there isn't any such thing. Trevelyan just led an ordinary normal life. Got very few letters and wrote less. There were no female complications in his life, I am sure of that. No, it beats me, Miss Trefusis.

Amazing how a couple of women could alter the whole character of a room – and without doing any outstanding that you could put your finger on.

„Bit too much of a movie stunt, eh? All the same very odd things happen. I've read some really amazing things in the Daily Wire – things you wouldn't credit if a newspaper didn't print them.”
„Are they any more to be credited on that account?” inquired Mr Rycroft acidly.

'That séance business was queer too,' he added. 'I'm thinking of writing that up for the paper. Get opinions from Sir Oliver Lodge and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and a few actresses and people about it.'
