Publisher's Summary

Luke Fitzwilliam does not believe Miss Pinkerton's wild allegation that a multiple murderer is at work in the quiet English village of Wychwood and that her local doctor is next in line.
But within hours, Miss Pinkerton has been killed in a hit-and-run car accident. Mere coincidence? Luke is inclined to think so - until he reads in the Times of the unexpected demise of Wychwood's Dr. Humbleby.
This title was previously published as Easy to Kill.

A Christie country mystery

As with all Agatha Christie mysteries, the solution to the mystery isn't revealed until the end. The clues lead round and round as the sleuth peels away the superficial covering laid down by the murderer.

The charm underlying this story is of young romance, honor, and destiny.

Readers who enjoy a diversion into last-century English country life should find this story a nice vacation from 21st century concerns.

Entertaining with Twists and Turns

I enjoyed the characters in Murder Is Easy, though Christie again adds one of those love at first sight subplots that I find hard to accept. The plot twists keep you guessing until the end. This is sometimes billed as a Superintendent Battle story but be warned, he only shows up in the last chapter or two and is really an afterthought. Any Superintendent would have done the job.
