I hadn't realized that this was their last book together. This is one I recently reread and enjoyed even more the second time around. Though I guessed who the killer was (first time I read it) simply because I followed the Christie rule of making the least likely person the killer. I also have read and enjoyed several of the Mr. and Mrs. North books. Though admittedly, they can be 'iffy'. Still, I wish more were readily available.

Me, too, Yvette! Kudos to MysteriousPress / Open Road for reissuing several of the Mr. and Mrs. North series. I should have mentioned that on the blog!

Thanks for the post. I will have to catch up with the Mr. and Mrs. North series.

It's a lot easier now, thanks to Mysterious Press and Open Road. But I actually came across my copies at our local public library.
