Of the eight books I returned to the library this week, I had a hard time choosing between the top two. In the end Agatha Christie's Curtain edged out C.J. Sansom's Revelation, but only just. Both are worth reading.
Curtain is Hercule Poirot's last case. He's old and arthritic and has returned to the site of his first case, a manor house called Styles. While I was slightly annoyed with his old friend Captain Hastings' naïveté and vaguely bumbling bonhomie, the solution to the crimes was intriguing. I was impressed with the irony.
