    Sparkling Cyanide by Agatha Christie is a 2001 Minotaur publication Originally published in 1945Classic Agatha Christie Always a treat It has been a long time since I read a book by AC With a nip in the air and the days getting shorter I always find myself in the mood for a good old fashioned golden age mystery to curl up with This classic whodunit is very cleverly plotted and centers around Rosemary Barton a beautiful young heiress who suddenly committed suicide Now one year after her death her husband George begins receiving anonymous notes suggesting his wife may have been murdered Thus unfolds the sordid tale of the events leading up to Rosemary’s untimely death George then plans to host a remembrance party for Rosemary inviting all the people who were present at the dinner when Rosemary decided to end her life He is determined to discover if his wife was indeed murdered and if so by whom This classic mystery hit the spot It was perfect for the mood I was in plus it is a Christie novel that I had never read This book was originally published in 1945 but it has certainly aged well I thought the dialogue was crisp and sharp with the entertaining trademark twists Christie was so gifted withI thoroughly enjoyed this uick and easy mystery and think I’ll start working of these titles into my reading schedule often 4 stars

    Sparkling Cyanide is the 4th book in the Colonel Race series by Agatha Christie Published in 1944 it is one of the stories represented in tv shows or movies but the sleuth isn't either of the popular Miss Marple or Hercule Poirot characters Race is a bit bland by their standards and he doesn't figure in until the latter portion of the book Overall it's a good story but it lacked something for me to really recommend it as a clever mysteryThe premise Rosemary committed suicide a year ago or did she? Her husband begins to wonder if she might've been killed Then he gets notes and realizes she had been having an affair Which of the two men at their dinner table that night had killed her? Or was it her sister? His secretary? One of the men's wives? Someone else? The book is divided into 3 parts We hear from each of the major characters then a second dinner scene is reenacted to catch the killer only someone else dies again Whodunit?I enjoyed the structure a lot By giving us a chapter or two on each character we learned the backstory and decided which ones we liked and disliked We hardly get to see Rosemary except for a few memories but we do meet some of her relatives who might've had an interest in her death There are a lot of characters to track in the beginning but it gets easier I liked the staging and dynamics between everyone too For these reasons it's easily a four star readThen we get to the mystery Clever but not strong enough It all comes down to trickery which is Christie's major prowess at work While I found the reasons believable I struggled with how someone could possibly come up with the solution and how the killer was not recognized It's the kind of story where readers could never solve it yet they will find the answers interesting yet ask uestions For those reasons it was just an average book Given it's Christie and I love her writing style I still think it's worth a solid readFor those who have not read her before this shouldn't be your first book It's not strong enough Onward I go I've finished about 50% of her books and soon there will be another

    315✨I don't review her books never could because honestly I will be bias because I love her Period2482 For all who don't know I am in love with Agatha Christie ever since I started reading her books 5 years ago and I planned to read a book of her each month so that I don't run out of her books

    Just like Colonel Race himself this lesser known Christie novel is a real gemYet again Dame Agatha proves that she’s the ueen of crime as I was fooled againAs the one year anniversary of Rosemary Barton’s death husband George arrangers a gathering at the same venue ‘The Luxembourg’ where his wife diedGeorge believes that her death which was ruled as suicide was in fact murder he hopes to prove his beliefs with a reenactments by inviting the same guestsThe result might just surprise himJust like her best closed circle mysteries it’s the assembled cast of characters that really stand out in this storyWhilst the plot was strong it’s the glitzy London setting that really appealedConstantly trying to spot the clues only to be kicking myself that it was so obvious during the revealThey’re the best types of Christie mysteries

    35 stars Well I have just encountered an Agatha Christie character that I had no idea was part of her mystery collection Scotland Yard's Colonel Race He's as formidable as Hercule Poirot without the ego Sparkling Cyanide appears to be AC's take on the cold case as the original murder took place a year ago Well it was originally deemed a suicide of a young heiress named Rosemary Barton but now the young woman's husband has received startling information that shows someone would benefit from her death But who? Because in classic fashion there are no shortage of suspects

    35 “Six people were thinking of Rosemary Barton who had died nearly a year ago”Ok well I think it got old about a couple of years ago me saying I love Christie and you smiling and nodding and then –as politely as possible– proceeding to scroll down and just ignore me because the whole Goodreads must have got it by now But this is just the honest truth folks I love Agatha Christie And the simple fact that this book was written by her is the first reason why you should read thisThe second reason is come on it's called Sparkling Cyanide How can you say no to a title like that?And the third I guessed it For once in my sorry life I actually got the murderer It wasn't that I desperately wanted all the other suspects to be innocents and happy and so I fixed my suspicions on that one It wasn't like that at allSo basically Sparkling Cyanide bought my favour by presenting me with irresistible characters and then making me think I'm smarter than I actually am Well played Christie Well played

    Sparkling Cyanideby Agatha Christie45 StarsI have no words for this Agatha Christie has done it again Never a disappointment she is truly The ueen of Mystery However this book is for the old schoolers either way this book was amazingWhat I always think while reading Agatha Christie's books is that literally everyone is a suspect you can never trust any of her characters that were involved in a crime scene This has started off very interestingly but halfway through it was a bit dull and then the last few chapters kept me at the edge of my seat I was anxious to know what was about to happen and howOverall I really liked this it was exciting very suspenseful and raw

    A thrilling detection novel from the ueen of mystery It is one of her two novels to feature Colonel Race the other being Man in the brown suit The novel is enlarged version of the short story Yellow Iris featuring Poirot For some strange reason when Agatha enlarged the story she replaced Poirot with Colonel Race The element of suspense and intrigue builds up right from the first page and the storyline manages to hold your attention till the every end Interesting read

    In 1939 Agatha Christie published a short story featuring Hercule Poirot entitled Yellow Iris A few years later she expanded the story into this excellent novel changing the detective to Colonel Race Having read the story before the novel I immediately recognized the similarity of the setup right down to the name Iris I assumed therefore that I knew how the murder was done and in fact that aspect remains the same However if you think that reading the story will make it pointless to read the novel think again The murderer is someone completely different and I was wrong in my suspicions and shocked at the ending I know it's a 5 star Agatha when she reveals the murderer and I smack myself on the forehead and yell Holy crap out loud Sparkling Cyanide is such a novel I was blindsided by the ending immediately kicked myself for not seeing it and went back to re read earlier passages that contained clues or significant omissions for there is a touch of Roger Ackroyd style omission here Sparkling Cyanide is one of my favorite Christie titles by the way it suggests the glamour of the elegant 1930s nightclub where the murder takes place and certainly the idea of cyanide in the Champagne is a dramatic and memorable one I also have to give Dame Agatha credit for introducing me to the verb cyanosed ie killed via cyanide which I now want to work into a conversation sometime I think it might supersede defenestrate as my new favorite violent verb This is one of the novels I will keep and re read as knowing the solution does not diminish its style and the bravado with which Dame Agatha carries it off
