Hopefully your summer heatwave — or winter freeze-wave — has passed and you’re calm, relaxed, and ready to listen to Brad, Moira, and me discuss some Agatha Christie in spoiler-filled detail. This time we’re talking about Towards Zero (1944), the fifth and final book to feature Superintendent Battle.
Is there much to discuss in advance? Not really. We all liked this, which makes a change, despite the fact that it walks a very delicate line between telling you exactly enough for your brain to fill in any gaps but also not quite enough for it to be completely satisfying. Anyhoo, we’ll get into that, and you can see whether you agree.
My thanks, as always, to Brad, to Moira, and to yourselves, dear listeners. The next, potentially final, Spoiler Warning discussion will be Mrs. McGinty’s Dead (1952) in October. See you then for that!
