Agatha Christie – The Sittaford Mystery

 

The Sittaford Mystery is a quaint Christie classic, a murder mystery set in a tiny village on the outskirts of Dartmoor. This story features Inspector Narracott, a character who also appears or is mentioned in several other of her novels, and I always found him to be an interesting character. In many ways, Christie’s more traditional detectives are more interesting and more likable than her more mainstream characters, like Miss Marple and Parker Pyne.

It’s also interesting to note how the novel contains references to The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle – both are set in Devon, both feature weird dogs and the Christie novel even name-drops the great writer as a potential source for comment in an article about a seance. Christie and Conan Doyle were two of the greatest crime novelists to ever live, and so it’s interesting to see this crossover.

Overall, while it’s not the best of her books, you can do much worse than The Sittaford Mystery and it’s a must-read for anyone who’s interested in crime novels and the work of Agatha Christie.
