Book 19 | 20| 21/30 | The Thirteen Problems, The Labors of Hercules and One, Two, Buckle My Shoe by Agatha Christie



The Thirteen Problems (Miss Marple, #2) : This is a superb collection of 13 short stories, woven together as a guessing game of "Who committed the crime?". These incidents happened in the narrator's past and only she/he know the real answer (culprit). It is our Miss Marple who solves them all and in quite interesting ways by drawing village parallels and using her own unique perspective of everyday life.

The Labors of Hercules (Hercule Poirot, #26): Only Agatha Christie is capable of doing such a clever feat - give the ancient 12 Labours of Hercules a modern twist in the form of murder mysteries that our now hero, Hercule Poirot have to solve. Most of stories are ingenious and few are ok. An engaging read. Click here to add this book to your Goodreads shelf.

One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (Hercule Poirot, #22): Honestly, this story line is the most difficult and convoluted of all Agatha Christie books I read so far. The premise is to solve the murder of a harmless dentist Mr. Morley. It takes a while for the reader to figure out who is who. There many characters and its slow pace can be a bit downer. That said, I immensely enjoyed the last few pages when it finally strikes our Poirot who did it all and why. Click here to add this book to your Goodreads shelf.

Book 18/30 | Fool Me Once by Harlan Coben



Fool Me Once is my first Harlan Coben novel and what a fantastic page turner it turned out to be. The twists & turns; what to believe; what not to believe; who is the culprit; who is the victim: we keep guessing until the very end. Isn't that the hallmark of a great thriller?
