Two storylines, so if you've read the book, you can still be surprised by the ending; fans of Agatha Christie may enjoy the "hidden" facts about the author

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders

 

Agatha Christie: The ABC Murders for DS Review - Its flaws will only be forgiven by stringent Agatha Christie fans. Those looking for a game to kill the wait for the next Professor Layton, however, will be disappointed.

Authentic dialogue

Boring puzzles
