This was a great mystery novel! I used to read mysteries all the time, but this is the first time in a while that I picked one up. I'm definitely going back into them again!
"Why Didn't They Ask Evans?" is one of Agatha Christie's stand-alone novels, and I found it to be an excellent mystery. There was a great cast of characters, and I wish I could see more of Bobby and Frankie. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick "whodunit" read.

This sublime novel is a subtle and ingenious detective story. I could'n find out the killer till the end of the book. I think its great to read different characters after Hercule Poirot and this book is one of the best novel from her. I couldn't wait an hour to finish the book it was thrilling.
