Delusioni sentimentali che si susseguono; drastiche decisioni di ignorare gli uomini; periodi tetri, che più tetri non si può; nuovi incontri e il destino sembra ricorrere... ma davvero si ripeterà? Davvero è quella la sorte di Agatha? La calura estiva sembra rendere apatica Agatha, che non si incuriosisce nemmeno per l'arrivo del nuovo vicino, Paul Chatterton. Tuttavia, quando lui le propone di partecipare alla caccia a un fantasma nel cottage di una vecchia signora, Agatha accetta, ma non fa bella figura quando scappa dalla dimora infestata per aver visto la padrona di casa uscire da camera sua con una maschera (di bellezza!) verde sul viso... Con la coda tra le gambe accetta un lavoretto a Londra e durante la sua assenza la vecchia signora viene assassinata. Come può Agatha resistere a un nuovo caso?

She must have redone her makeup fifty times. The author forgot that she'd already told us about the new thinner Charles. Also, I thought his children where a fake - wife never actually had been pregnant. Suddenly, a few months later, "they are little aliens refusing to speak English?" I realize the

Continuity errors - how I hate them. You can't embroil a man in a juicy marriage scandal complete with fake pregnancy and then later claim he's got children! It's the sort of character inconsistency that stands out. Apart from that, this was an engaging case. Beginning with a supposedly haunted house Leggi tutto
