What is the connection among a failed suicideattempt, a wrongful accusation oftheft against a schoolgirl, and the romantic lifeof a famous tennis player?
To the casual observer, apparently nothing.But when a house party gathers at Gull’s Point,the seaside home of an elderly widow, earlierevents come to a dramatic head. As SuperintendentBattle discovers, it is all part of a carefullylaid plan—for murder.
The nature of the plot was intriguing, as well as the characters that were involved.
The idea of what "Toward Zero" means keeps the pace moving very quickly, like a ticking clock, running out of time to the end of the book.
Agatha Christie was at the top of her form in the 1940's and this novel first published in 1944 could very well be her very best.
The story was very well written and interesting. I'd recommend it to my friends.
Well worth the price that's charged.

Not the usual Christie. Don't want to spoil it, but I just didn't care for the ending.
And it took too long to get to the murder. Read more
