After the Funeral by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Another of her amazing works! I had previously read this, and while I recalled that it centred on Cora, I had forgotten who the real culprit was, and then I was surprised all over again.
I also have a soft spot for the language used in that century and I love the world she creates. Christie has a gift for character building, and somehow poor vacuous Rosamund was one of my favourites. I adore sharp characters, but a combination of sharp and placid just gets to me like none other. Must be a very different kind of life, that kind of thought process.
I love how Agatha Christie always manages to make every character so well defined and believable. You never know who's done it till you know for sure.
I've always loved Poirot, even though by all accounts, Christie herself never seemed to like him very much.
One of those classics you can read over and over again.
