Six people sit down to a sumptuous meal at a table laid for seven. In front of the empty place is a sprig of rosemary—“rosemary for remembrance.” A strange sentiment considering no one is likely to forget the night, exactly a year ago, that Rosemary Barton died at exactly the same table, her beautiful face unrecognizable, convulsed with pain and horror.

    " More like three and a half stars. I still have never in my life guessed an Agatha Christie villain, with or without Hercule Poirot being awesome, so that's cool. "

    " I was a quite interesting story. It was differen and it had an interested plot. Somethings I did not like, but I can assure you, you'll like to keep reading till the last word. "

    " I enjoyed reading this book. It had likable characters and was well paced. I was able to guess part of the ending but not how it was done. I thought this was one of the better Agatha Christie novels. It is one of the Colonel Race mysteries. "

    " I adore listening to Agatha Christie on CD while I am driving or completing other mindless tasks. This is a great one! "
