The Mysterious Mr Quin

The Harley Quin mysteries are a special case. They are mysteries in a special sense, not of the who done it variety. Coincidence is actually a plot requirement because the plots always flirt with the supernatural. I like them.
The Mysterious Mr Quinn has to be Christie’s strangest novel. The short stories in it are a combination mystery and romantic melodrama. Mr Quinn has to be the oddest character Christie has ever created. He is not a detective. But he always shows up when people are in trouble. I think he is either the Grimm reaper or some kind of Angel.
Unlike other Agatha Christie novels, this one was written in a very unusual style. This collection of stories appealed to me because it included a unique detective technique that led to an unusual conclusion.
This book is really interesting. different mystery in every chapter and solving.
