Sparkling Cyanide book. Agatha Christie Sparkling Cyanide is a work of detective fiction by British writer Agatha Christie, first published in February 1945 under the title of Remembered Death. Six people reunite to remember beautiful Rosemary Barton, who. One year earlier on 2 November, seven people sat down to dinner at the restaurant "Luxembourg". One, Rosemary Barton, never got up.

Sparkling Cyanide was first published in London in 1945 but still holds up well as one of Dame Agatha Christie's best murder mysteries. The novel does not present the sleuthing skills of Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. Instead, the case is handled with skillful aplomb by avuncular Colonel Race, Inspector Kemp of Scotland Yard and a chap named Anthony Brown. The Plot: A woman is found murdered at her table at a posh restaurant.

A beautiful heiress is fatally poisoned in a West End restaurant. The novel changed the identity of the culprits as well, a common feature of Agatha Christie’s rewritten works. Six people sit down to dinner at a table laid for seven. In 1983 the story was adapted as a TV film for CBS, set in the modern day and starring Anthony Andrews (although the character of Colonel Race was omitted). 2003 saw it again adapted as a TV film, this time in the UK by Laura Lamson. Again in a modern setting, it was only loosely based on the original story. BBC Radio 4 broadcast a three-part dramatisation of the story in 2012.

Collins brings the Queen of Crime, Agatha Christie, to English language learners. Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time and in any language. Now Collins has adapted her famous detective novels for English language learners. These carefully abridged versions are shorter with the language targeted at learners of English. Six people sit down for dinner at a table laid for seven. No one can forget the night exactly a year ago that Rosemary Barton died at this same table surrounded by the same people, her beautiful face turned blue with cyanide poison. Rosemary had always been memorable - and people had strong reactions to her. Did one of the six people at dinner feel strongly enough about her to kill her?

I thought I had it figured out, almost put the book down because of the fact it seemed so obvious. The only reason I continued is because I know Agatha Christie is anything but predictable. Let's just say there's a nice surprise for you at the end and you definitely won't expect it. I can honestly say she never disappoints. I prefer her writing to modern mysteries any day.
On another note- This isn't in my top favorites by AC, but it's still a good (& quick) read. It also is not a Poirot or Marple mystery, for those wondering.

This is one Agatha Christie that I had not read, for some unknown reason, for some time. I had even forgotten whodunnit, which is unusual. A lot of times that's ALL I remember. This one surprised me. There's some real darkness at its core that's very different for a Poirot novel. There's a lot about politics (mostly radical), innocent people being harmed, and a very cold-blooded psychopathic killer just full of excuses for their behavior. I really loathed this killer for their flippant disregard of other people's lives.

“Yes, we are all human beings. That is what you have not remembered." (Hercule Poirot)

The story starts simply - and humorously - enough with Poirot going to his dentist, Dr Henry Morley. Later, Poirot learns that Dr Morley is dead - supposedly a suicide. When another of Morley's patients, Mr Amberiotis, dies of an overdose from a dental anesthetic. Did Morley commit suicide when he realized what he had done? Of course, it's not that simple - it never is with Christie. Then another patient of Morley's, Mabelle Sainsbury Seale, vanishes.

To say anything else would ruin the fun of reading this excellent Agatha Christie. Very recommended.

Another of my favorite Christies. Like I said in another review, Christie does very well groups of people, be they family (Crooked House) or fellow travelers (Murder on the Orient Express). The characters are all individuals.

Hercule Poirot is vacationing at the Jolly Roger Hotel, Smugglers’ Island, Leathercombe Bay, in southern England. Also present is Arlena Stuart Marshall, a beautiful former actress, her husband, Captain Kenneth Marshall, and his teenage daughter, Linda Marshall.

Arlena loves men and men love her - and she sees no reason why just because she's married she shouldn't have some fun. Of course, for Arlena this means flirting - and more. Meanwhile, her taciturn husband - the epitome of the British gentleman - suffers in silence. Linda, though, is not so silent and her feelings are very obvious. To complicate matters, Kenneth Marshall's childhood friend, Rosamund Darnley, is also at the resort. Then there are the Redferns, Patrick and Christine. Patrick quickly begins a relationship with Arlena that sets the stage for murder.

This is one of the more enjoyable Christies. The characters are well drawn and interesting. Linda lonely, unhappy, and struggling with her feelings about her stepmother's death. Even Arlena is sympathetically drawn. Once I learned her story, I could not help but feel sorry for her. There is an interesting twist at the end. The murderer and the motive are both rather surprising, and I really did not suspect either.

Very well done.

Another Agatha Christie story to enjoy. Like her others, it is a straight up mystery. There is a character who is new to me by the name of Colonel Race....an older man who was a British spy. He is the mystery solver. He joins with Scotland Yard and another ...hmm young retired spy of the American persuasion. I really enjoyed this book. It brought to life the woman who would soon be dead -- whether it was murder or suicide, we will know later. If murder, there are plenty of suspects, each laid out individually and each with plausible motives for her murder. Clues begin popping up and another murder/suicide happens? Good twists all the way till the end of the book.
This is why Agatha is the biggest selling author in the world after the Bible and Shakespeare. She always delivers.

Christie pulls out all the stops in this one. The story is told mostly in flashbacks or remembrances of the main characters. They are all the suspects in the death of Rosemary Barton, a beautiful socialite who seems to have everything. There are many plot twists in this one all centering around a dinner party given at a famous London restaurant. Rosemary has money and beauty, her little sister has none of these. Rosemary is in love with a married man, does his wife know, does her husband know? There's a darkhorse character whom she gets the goods on. Is he angry enough to kill her? Rosemary's husband's secretary is secretly in love with him. Is she the killer? Just when you think you have it figured out, Christie turns the tables.

Sparkling Cyanide was first published in London in 1945 but still holds up well as one of Dame Agatha Christie's best murder mysteries. The novel does not present the sleuthing skills of Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. Instead, the case is handled with skillful aplomb by avuncular Colonel Race, Inspector Kemp of Scotland Yard and a chap named Anthony Brown.
The Plot: A woman is found murdered at her table at a posh restaurant. Was Rosemary a suicide victim or was she murdered? Her husband George hopes to reveal the murderer by inviting the same guests to dinner one year to the day his darling was poisoned with a jigger of cyanide?
Several of the suspects recount their memories of the murder and we follow what happens at the second party held at the Luxembourg restaurant.Christie's characters are more rounded in this novel than in some of her other books. The story is intriguing and is an excellent entry into the extensive Christie canon.
