Be re-introduced with the vintage Sittaford Msytery that Agatha Christie penned long ago

Classics have the eternal appeal, and even after you experience it after long long years, its appeal remains intact as it was. For the mystery classics, this observation is further true. Take this Sittaford Msytery that Agatha Christie has penned way back in 1931.Several generations have passed, but still the mystery flavor has remained intact for this flick, and the page at www.rightbooks.in/product_details.asp?pid=9780007299751&Agatha%20Christie%20The%20Sittaford%20Myste takes you to the plotting, if you still haven’t gone through it. The Sittaford Mystery, like The Murder at the Vicarage seems to reflect Christie looking for, if a not a new pattern for writing her books, at least the introduction of a new variation within the mix. Once again, as in several earlier books, the most proactive of the characters is a young woman although the point of view is not hers. The mystery itself is less ornately planned than many of the earlier Christies and is a rare example of a believable “Eureka” moment of detection. All the information the reader needs to at least suspect the real murderer has been laid before them and they are given every chance to make the same deduction as the detectives. This book shares something else with its immediate predecessor and that is a sharp move away from the pattern in the earlier books of showing spirited and intelligent young women being drawn to strong men. In earlier books Christie even writes of this tendency as if it was an evolutionary compulsion. However in this and the previous book she shows bright intelligent young women drawn to quieter less stereotypically manly men. Throughout this book it is clear that Emily Trefusis is brighter than her fiancée as well as having a stronger moral backbone. Yet at the end it is not presented as a tragedy that she does not leave her fiancée for the clearly more intelligent and ambitious Enderby. Yes, Emily clearly loves James Pearson but the reader is left to wonder if part of that love is the fact that he is a malleable and fertile field for the expression of her own intelligence and ambition. It's easy to kill if no one suspects you, and in the situation Luke Fitzwilliam has wandered into, that seems to be the case. A series of deaths has mostly gone unnoticed-- unfortunate accidents, they seemed, but not to everyone. Lavinia Fullerton has suspicions and premonitions, but she is run down on her way to alert the authorities. After hearing Lavinia's story retired police office Luke Fitzwilliam decides to do a bit of investigating of his own. He finds a small town with a variety of eccentricities. In some ways, this novel follows the typical Christie pattern: murder, a variety of suspects, and an unsuspected conclusion. This particular Christie has more of an element of danger, however, which adds excitement. We actually get to see some action, not just the detective revealing his or her conclusions at the end. Christie has also been successful in underlining the fact that apparantly; it is remarkably easy to kill. This was delightful tale of murder, spirits and true love. Christie filled her book with all the usual suspects including a mysterious woman who is not who she says she is, a host of poor relatives, a loyal servant, an ex-army officer and a recluse. Miss Emily Trefusis is a very modern young woman at a time when modern women were not easily accepted, especially in the English countryside. Her strength, charm and intelligence pay off in the end as she manages to uncover key clues and figure out how the seance and murder are connected.
