Having just directed A Caribbean Mystery with Helen Hayes as Miss Marple, Robert Michael Lewis returned to Agatha Christie for this blood-curdling concoction. One of the attractions for Christie's American fans is her essential Englishness, so it seems odd to transfer the action to Pasadena. However, at least Anthony Andrews is on hand to import some Brideshead Revisited class. With a couple of fatal toasts as its high points, the twisting plot will certainly keep you guessing. However, the tinkering with the original makes the mystery feel forced, and the resolution is not one of the author's best.
