The Secret of Chimneys (by Agatha Christie)

I'm enjoying - on the whole - reading my way through some of Agatha Christie's crime novels, and wondering why on earth I didn't start them before this year.

In 'The Secret of Chimneys', Anthony meets an old friends, and agrees to deliver an important manuscript to London. He is also asked to return some letters to someone who has been blackmailed.

He quickly becomes involved in the lives of various people, and attempts to solve the mystery of an unexpected murder, as well as trying to discover some missing family jewels.

I thought the plot was excellent, and there were some surprises at the end which kept me guessing. Recommended.
