A mystery which contains non of the Christie regulars except Mrs. Oliver , which was surprisingly much better than I expected from the lukewarm first half.
The discovery made by Mrs. Oliver gives the vital clue for solving the mystery - interestingly, it was instrumental in saving a person's life also in the real world.
A nurs A mystery which contains non of the Christie regulars except Mrs. A nurse noticed that the symptoms resembled those of victims in The Pale Horse.
When she reported this, doctors immediately tested for thallium, found it, changed the treatment and saved the girl's life.
Inquiries revealed that her parents had been using thallium sulphate to kill cockroaches in their home. The last was even worse the BBC did set in but was not right.
Agatha Christie did lot of Hercule Poirot books and Miss Marple but she also did stand alone books such as And then their were None this one of those.
One of her much later mystery books towards the end of her life with Macbeth hint and biblical over hints. Behold a Pale Horse and his name was death.
She did love her poisons. Published in , this is a later Agatha Christie novel, and a slightly different plot to that which you might be expecting.
This is not a cosy mystery, set in a stately home, amid the drawing rooms of the aristocracy. Rather, this has a feel of Dennis Wheatley about it, with a real sense of the supernatural.
A dying woman gives her last confession to a Catholic priest. Father Gorman is troubled by what she tells him and, on the way home, he scribbles a list of names she has given him and tucks Published in , this is a later Agatha Christie novel, and a slightly different plot to that which you might be expecting.
Father Gorman is troubled by what she tells him and, on the way home, he scribbles a list of names she has given him and tucks it into his shoe.
However, Father Gorman is destined never to reach his destination and is found struck dead in the fog.
Later, the list of names is found and the police are, obviously, interested in what linked them to the woman who so urgently required Father Gorman to visit her.
Meanwhile, in the coffee bars of Chelsea a setting that you feel Christie did not feel quite comfortable with , author Mark Easterbrook witnesses a cat fight between two girls.
Later, he discovers that one of the girls has died and that her name was on the list of names that Father Gorman had hidden. Later, he visits a village fete with mystery writer, Ariadne Oliver, and hears of an old house, converted from an Inn.
The Pale Horse is said to be the home of three witches, led by the mysterious Thyrza Grey. Along with Ginger Corrigan, who Mark Easterbrook meets while visiting the fete, the two begin to investigate the strange, unexplained deaths of those on that list.
This is a novel which deals with the mysterious and the occult. Christie always had a great belief in good and evil and those themes make this an interesting read.
There are weaknesses in some of her later writing — she often seems a little ill at ease discussing modern life, but she plotted better than any other crime writer I have ever read.
Clever, subtle and with excellent characters and a fiendishly clever ending. View 2 comments. Extremely dark and chilling - read with a stuffed animal or a huggable friend nearby!
Very thrilling and powerful read, and definitely my favourite non-Poirot or Marple mystery, hands down.
Definitely a tense and creepy affair; the atmosphere is very much like what I would imagine the dark streets of Whitechapel would be during the late 19th Century.

Mark Easterbrook is a loveable hero, intelligent and brave, and you can't help but be nervous and root for him at the same time as he plunges headlong into danger in order to solve the mystery.
The romance was reasonably well-developed and rather cute, too; totally cheered when he found the right girl and came to his senses about the boring, snobby one.
The random appearances of Ariadne Oliver made a nice tie-in with her other cases, and her slightly batty, cheery personality made a great contrast with the rest of the case.
This is probably the first time I liked her rather than finding her annoying! I remember rereading this Christie several times in high school.
I really enjoyed this non-Poirot and non-Marple story of the deaths of various people from flus and other normal causes. And if it weren't because of a number of odd little things about these deaths setting off main character Mark Easterbrook's questions, and the wonderful Ariadne Oliver's emphatic statements pushing Mark in useful directions, and the murder of a parish priest, the baddie could conceivably have continued on with bu I remember rereading this Christie several times in high school.
And if it weren't because of a number of odd little things about these deaths setting off main character Mark Easterbrook's questions, and the wonderful Ariadne Oliver's emphatic statements pushing Mark in useful directions, and the murder of a parish priest, the baddie could conceivably have continued on with business.
On this reread, I cheered when Ariadne appeared, and when the terrific Ginger took the whole affair seriously and made sure things happened.
And though I knew who the baddie was, it was interesting to watch as Detective Inspector Lejeune quietly and competently put facts together, based on the details Ginger and Easterbrook gleaned and from his own investigation.
Choose Your Own Adventure! And I looked, and behold a pale horse: and his name that sat on him was Death, and Hell followed with him.
And power was given unto them over the fourth part of the earth, to kill with sword, and with hunger, and with death, and with the beasts of the earth.
Aug 03, F. As apparently all English villages have witches a fact which all country folk know , and it would just be more effective to use their type of gentle malevolence for the Wyrd sisters, rather than go over the top and be silly.
A Catholic priest is murdered and on his person is a list of names given to him by a dying lady. It becomes clear to the police that a number of the names on that list are now deceased, but that they all died — seemingly — of natural courses.
It takes Mark Easterbrook, a busybody with too much time on his hands, and his plucky gal assistant Ginger Corrigan to link the deaths with three spiritualists who live in a former pub called The Pale Horse.
They are just eccentric old dears who mix spells and then offer cups of tea. There is also, oddly, a lot of talk about how nobody could be tried for murder by witchcraft.
The prosaic ending is distinctly irritating, but very like Christie. This book started super strong, got a little wonky midway through, but totally delighted me with the ending!
The type b version of mystery is so much more my kind of Christie, anyways, so that made me happy. The non-Poirot or Jane Marple books are usually hit or miss for me.
However, Christie does a great job with this one. The book is slow moving at first. We follow a man named Mark Easterbrook who narrates the majority of the book.
Initially we don't exactly know what's going on, we just know that there are some deaths that are somehow linked to a place called "The Pale Horse.
I liked Easterbrook and was delighted with Mrs. Oli The non-Poirot or Jane Marple books are usually hit or miss for me. Oliver for popping up too.
She gets strong armed to sign some books at a village fete by Easterbrook and makes mention of not liking fetes after what happened at the last one she was at Dead Man's Folly.
He has a steady relationship with a woman named Hermia who he is slightly fond of, but who he finds dull. When he witnesses two young woman tousling over a young man at a coffee bar; he finds out one of the woman's names Thomasina Tuckerton known as Tommy Tucker and learns later that she died after reading her obituary.
The book then shifts to Father Gorman who is called to give last rites to a woman who is dying. Whatever he learns disturbs him so much he goes off and writes down names.
Too bad for Father Gorman that someone ends up murdering the man, not realizing that he tucked the list of names into his shoe.
When the police are called up, they are flummoxed about the list of names. They realize some of the names are of people who have died, but have died of natural causes.
Then we switch back to Mark and him getting pulled into the investigation. There are a lot of characters in this one, but Christie does a great job with all of them I thought.
I liked Mark. We get some reveals about his backstory that surprised me. I did like that when he ends up realizing where The Pale Horse is near one of his relatives he acts as if he isn't interested in going there after what many of the inhabitants say about the three women who work there.
When he realizes that Hermia is not taking his concerns seriously, he goes to the local vicar's wife who believes him and also ends up getting assisted by Mrs.
Oliver who gives him some suggestions about forming a partnership with Ginger Corrigan a young lady he met when he initially came to visit his relatives.
I really enjoyed Ginger a lot. Her and Mark definitely realize something is up with The Pale Horse and refuse to just let the police do their investigation.
I also liked how Christie did foreshadowing in this one. We have Mark, Hermia, and Mark's friend and his date talking about MacBeth and the three witches and how unrealistic they are when you get into their speech and how actors portray them.
I liked how Mark's friend said what would be more scary would just be three ordinary women in a village who many have come to fear. Here are the three modern witches that his friend warned him about and Mark becomes afraid they do have real power to cause someone to get sick and die.
The writing was very good and I have to admit that I didn't see the ending coming at all. Per usual, smartly done by Christie.
I really liked this Agatha Christie story featuring Mrs. Ariadna Oliver. A priest is murdered and found with a list of names in his pocket.
Did one of them murder the priest? Who is the murderer? Oliver helps the local police find the murderer and bring him to justice.
It was a good story, and I liked the characters. I do feel though that parts of it were "phoned in" so I only gave it three stars.
The Pale Horse is a perfect showcase for the main problem with the whodunnit genre. The only thing of interest here is the solution.
This is the exact antithesis of what I consider good crime fiction where the journey matters more than the actual reveal. Mark Easterbrook, a plot device rather than a character is the protagonist.
Mark studies Mughal architecture for a living. S The Pale Horse is a perfect showcase for the main problem with the whodunnit genre.
So he obviously decides to become an amateur sleuth because his other option was killing himself due to boredom and gets tangled in a mystery with supernatural undertones.
They will your kill pesky nemesis for a small fee via black magic. So the who is revealed pretty early on and because you know Christie is not really famous for writing horror, the mystery here is how.
There is a late twist but it is a bit too cute for its own good. A lot of the book is a bit on the nose as if Christie was writing a meta commentary.
There are lines stating how evil masterminds are egotistical men-children. How the horror is amplified when there is an aura of normalcy around it.
And obviously the witches who literally admit to being the killers within the first half of the book. Christie's alter ego famous mystery writer Miss Oliver makes an appearance to tell us how difficult it is to write a satisfying mystery.
Yeah no shit. The first half drags a bit but the second half picks up the slack. The prose mainly exists to move the plot around and there is not anything praiseworthy about the writing itself except fleeting glances of the famed British humor.
Witty, quaint tidbits that somehow are smarter than they should be. I enjoyed one about love making men look like fools and women look radiant.
Anyway this is the book equivalent of the TV program that runs in the background while you go about your chores.
Not really engaging and will leave new fans wondering what's the fuss about Christie but might be comfortable to longtime Christie aficionados.

I listened to the AudioBook and found it very intense during those witch scenes. The mystery begins with the murder of a Catholic priest.
He has a list of names in his shoe and that turn out to be a list of dead people. When Mark Easterbrook begins to look into this mystery because his godmother is on the list.
Mark was a great character. He The pale Horse is a really dark mystery. He is intelligent and he is curious.
I found the humor lovely, just as I usually do from Agatha Christie. I liked it a lot. I liked the character Ginger.
I was laughing as she and Mark were plotting together. Great fun story. The story really kept me guessing. I loved that at the end, I had not guessed the correct suspect.
It is a really wonderful book that I had missed reading when I was reading a lot of Agatha Christie. Ariadne Oliver hat hier ihren vierten Auftritt in einem Roman in einer Nebenrolle.
Der katholische Priester Gorman wird zur sterbenden Mrs. Davis gerufen, um ihr die letzte Beichte abzunehmen.
Dabei weiht sie ihn in ein Geheimnis ein, bevor sie stirbt. In einem Kaffeehaus schreibt er diese auf eine Papiertüte und steckt die Notizen danach in seinen Stiefel, da die Taschen seiner Soutane Löcher haben.
Weite Teile des Romans werden von Mark Easterbrook erzählt, einem Schriftsteller, der sich nach Chelsea zurückgezogen hat, um ein Buch über die Architektur der Moguln zu schreiben.
Er erfährt auch ihren Namen Thomasina Tuckerton. Bald darauf liest er in der Zeitung ihre Todesanzeige. Nachdem sie das ausgesprochen hat, ist sie ganz erschrocken und weigert sich mehr zu sagen.
Mark befürchtet nun, dass die Liste die Opferliste eines Serientäters ist. Bei seinen Spaziergängen lernt Mark Mr.
Venables kennen, einen alten Herrn, der im Rollstuhl sitzt und keine vernünftige Erklärung über die Herkunft seines Reichtums geben kann.
Später erscheint es ihm, als ob Thyrza ihm genau diese Dienstleistung anbieten wollte. In der polizeilichen Ermittlung gibt es einen Zeugen, den Apothekenbesitzer Zachariah Osborne, der einen Mann beschreibt, der Pater Gorman verfolgte, kurz bevor der ermordet wurde.
Später nimmt er Kontakt zur Polizei auf und erklärt, dass er genau diesen Mann wieder gesehen hat, diesmal aber in einem Rollstuhl.
At the end of the novel it is revealed that Osbourne has been the brains behind the Pale Horse organisation; the black-magic element was entirely a piece of misdirection on his part, while the murders were really committed by replacing products the victims had named in the CRC survey with poisoned ones.
Osbourne's clumsy attempt to implicate Venables was his final mistake. And not only does she never stop, but she drops the ball into the cup nearly every time; and if one is sometimes reminded of those automatic machines where one pulls a handle and out pops the finished product, that is a compliment to the automatic machine and not by any means a reflection on Mrs Christie.
For the latest tug on the Christie handle produces a product which is not only up to the standard but even above it. The Pale Horse is in fact the best sample from this particular factory for some time, and that is saying plenty.
The black magic theme is handled in a masterly and sinister fashion, and to give away what lay behind it would be unforgivable.
This is a book which nobody repeat, nobody should miss. Mr Iles further named the novel as his favourite in the paper's Critic's choice for the end of the year, published one week later, when he said, "It has not been an outstanding year for crime fiction, but as usual there have been one or two first-class items.

This novel is notable as several of her earlier characters reappear in this book. In addition to Ariadne Oliver, Major Despard and his wife Rhoda who met and fell in love in Cards on the Table also participate in the plot.
Mrs Dane Calthrop from The Moving Finger also reappears in approximately the same role as she played in that book: the rational but devoted Christian who wants the Evil stopped.
Mrs Oliver is apprehensive of attending a fete, for reasons that will be apparent to readers of her previous appearance in a Christie novel: Dead Man's Folly.
Mrs Lancaster from By the Pricking of My Thumbs may have been mentioned in a conversation, when one of the characters, David Ardingly, mentions how he met an old lady in a mental home who says exactly the same phrase which chilled Tuppence to the bone, and which had a similar effect on Ardingly.
Mrs Lancaster mentioned "ten past eleven", though, while Ardingly's recollection placed the mentioned time at " This novel is notable amongst Christie's books as it is credited with having saved at least two lives after readers recognised the symptoms of thallium poisoning from its description in the book.
The novel is also cited to have been the "inspiration" of what was dubbed "The Mensa Murder".Jahrhundert Kriminalliteratur. Bald darauf liest er in der Zeitung ihre Todesanzeige.
