Ordeal by InnocenceNuori Jack Argyle on saanut elinkautisen vankeustuomion Oikeudenkäynnissä on osoitettu että hän on surmannut äitinsä hiilihangolla Puolen vuoden vankilass. You really have to admire 1950s for their marvelous plot devices Amnesiacs mistaken identities and in this mystery by Agatha Christie a man with a concussion fails to provide an alibi and shortly after recovering heads off to Antarctica for a research expedition Barring that somewhat awkward premise Ordeal was an interesting psychological mystery that kept me engaged Dr Calgary the Antarctic research scientist discovers through old newspaper articles that he was the missing alibi for Jack Argyle accused and convicted of killing his mother Despite steadily maintaining his innocence Jack was sent to prison where he died of pneumonia after only six months Troubled by guilt Dr Calgary consults with the lawyer of the Jack's family determined to seek them out and assure them of Jack's innocence He expects a mixed emotional reaction perhaps to be thanked or perhaps to bear the brunt of their anger for his untimely appearance and information Unfortunately the facts of the case have failed to impress Dr Calgary and not even the warning from Jack's sister makes it clear it's not the guilty who matter It's the innocent It's we who matter Don't you see what you've done to us allOne of her brothers visits Dr Calgary at his hotel examining his story and providing Calgary with the background on his family and the reason they are so upset by his news Calgary shocked finds himself back at the lawyer's seeking information and then proceeds to talk with some of the principles I thought that I was ending something giving shall we say a different end to a chapter already written But I was made to feel I was made to see that instead of ending something I was starting something Something altogether new Meanwhile the police while doubtful of their ultimate success are determinedly re opening the case and eventually Dr Calgary's goals dovetail with their ownTechnically her writing is impressive On re read I realized how streamlined and exacting her prose is and all the clever ways she conveys dialogue without resorting to a simple he said she said format that plagues less experienced writers Characterization is also impeccably done a few short sentences illuminating an entire personality Arthur Calgary walked down the sloping ramp and got into the boat as the ferryman steadied it with a boathook He was an old man and gave Calgary the fanciful impression that he and his boat belonged together were one and indivisibleFor a moment a feeling of poignant sadness came over him as he confronted the virile youth of the boy facing himSuperintendent Huish was a tall sad looking man His air of melancholy was so profound that no one would have believed that he could be the life and soul of a children's party cracking jokes and bringing pennies out of little boys' earsIt was a pretty rather vapid little face plastered with make up eyebrows plucked hair hideous and stiff in a cheap permWriting like this reminds me of the certain degree of sloppiness I see in current writers who are churning out book after book Easy enough to do if your last ten books bore any resemblance to Parker phoning in Bad Business or Evanovich and her umpteenth Plum fiasco But Christie wrote for over 40 years and had 66 detective novels to her credit; while not all of them hit excellence I'm not sure they fell uite to those depths Grand Dame indeed To top it off the mystery was decent and the solution a surprise There were pieces Christie left in place and while I picked up on a few I was short of constructing the picture view spoilerIt was also a pleasure when all ended well if rather sweetly hide spoiler

EXCERPT Calgary came to the end of the nice new road with the nice new houses on either side of it each with its eighth of an acre of garden; rock plants chrysanthemums roses salvias geraniums each owner displaying his or her individual garden tasteAt the end of the road was a gate with SUNNY POINT in Gothic letters on it He opened the gate passed through and went along a short drive The house was there ahead of him a well built characterless modern house gabled and porched It might have stood on any good class suburban site or a new development anywhere It was unworthy in Calgary's opinion of its view For the view was magnificent The river here curved sharply round the point almost turning back on itself Wooded hills rose opposite; upstream to the left was a further bend in the river with meadows and orchards in the distance Calgary looked for a moment up and down the river One should have built a castle here he thought an impossible ridiculous fairy tale castle The sort of castle that might be made of gingerbread or frosted sugar Instead there was good taste restraint moderation plenty of money and absolutely no imagination For that naturally one did not blame the Argyles They had only bought the house not built it Stillthey or one of them Mrs Argyle had chosen itHe said to himself 'You can't put it off any longer' and pressed the electric bell beside the door ABOUT THIS BOOK Recovering from amnesia Dr Arthur Calgary discovers that he alone could have provided an alibi in a scandalous murder trial It ended in the conviction of Jacko Argyle The victim was Jacko's own mother and to make matters worse he died in prison But the young man's innocence means that someone else killed the Argyle matriarch and would certainly kill again to remain in the shadows Shaded in the moral ambiguity of murder the provocative psychological puzzler of guilt vengeance and blood secrets is among Agatha Christie's personal favoritesMY THOUGHTS I was excited to discover I thought a Christie that I hadn't previously read But once I got into it I realized that I had previously read it and had also seen the TV adaptation and a very good one it was too But not to worry as I couldn't remember 'whodunit'So I got to read and enjoy this stand alone mystery all over again And to be wrong all over again about just who the murderer was A delightful 😍😍😍😍 murder mysteryTHE AUTHOR Agatha Christie is the best selling author of all time She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections fourteen plays and several other books Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple and author of The Mousetrap the longest running play in the history of modern theatre Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Toruay Devon England UK as the youngest of three The Millers had two other children Margaret Frary Miller 1879–1950 called Madge who was eleven years Agatha's senior and Louis Montant Miller 1880–1929 called Monty ten years older than Agatha During the First World War she worked at a hospital as a nurse;
