2008: 48. Endless Night


“In my end is my beginning... That’s a quotation I’ve often heard people say.  It sounds all right - but what does it really mean?”

Endless Night, Agatha Christie

Oooooh this is a creepy little book.  The story concerns Michael Rogers, a charming drifter who meets and marries a beautiful young heiress.  They build their dream home on their dream property only to have things turn sour when it turns out that the land is the cursed “Gypsy’s Acre’s” and the curse seems to be coming true.  Very atmospheric, and a very, very nasty little ending that seems un-Christie like, but very, very good.  This could be Christie for people who hate Christie, I think.

Date/Place Completed: 4/1/08; D.C.
