Endless Night (by Agatha Christie)

Once started, I was determined to catch up for lost time by reading as many of Agatha Christie's crime novels as I could.

This time I picked up 'Endless Night' - and was less favourably impressed than I had been with the previous books I had read by this author.

Mike meets Ellie, the girl of his dreams, and finds a house which the both love. It's on a site supposedly cursed by gipsies, however, and they find that they are repeatedly warned away from it.

Tragedy strikes, and then the plot has a twist so shocking that I could hardly believe it. A very strange ending, too. Not one of my favourites.
