The Mysterious Mr Quin

The Mysterious Mr. Quin by Agatha Christie

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


I very much like the retro feel of my edition’s cover

The Mysterious Mr. Quin (Harley Quin, #1) by Agatha Christie



But some other editions have some quite brilliant cover art that capture the who feel of this book

The Mysterious Mr Quin The World's End and other stories by Agatha Christie



(I’ve had fun collecting these covers, all from Goodreads)

I didn’t care for this title when I read it in my younger years, but the hint of the fantastic doesn’t bother me now and with the exception of The Shadow of the Glass and The Bird With a Broken Wing (this one was too silly for me!) these were all good engrossing stories. I loved the complexity that Christie gave to Satterthwaite’s character and his development as a detective. For he is more than an observer and he is greatly appreciated by Mr Harley Quin. Quin has his own back story which is fascinating to read.

These stories feel like a homage to Arthur Conan Doyle, and to certain extent, Edgar Allan Poe and are none the worse for that.
