The Pale Horse by Agatha Christie

Forget the depressing BBC version. The true Pale Horse is much more creepy and fun. Join Mark Easterbrook on his quest to solve the mystery of the witches living at the old Pale Horse Inn.

I love Agatha Christie’s books. Yes they are old fashioned and yes some of them are the same plot under different titles (don’t tell anybody!) but what I love most about them is their comfort factor. I read Agatha Christie books before I go to sleep. They don’t worry me or stop me from sleeping. They are the epitome of cozy crime. They are the roaring fire or comfy blanket of crime.

This is not a bad thing. Christie as always sprinkles enough red herrings around to keep us guessing. The characters are fun and well presented (if at times a little one sided) and it rips along at a fair old pace. This is not one of her most famous books and it does not include the superstar sleuths Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple but it is well worth a read.
