The Pale Horse - Agatha Christie

Not my favorite Christie Novel.


The premise is interesting---can a witch murder through black magic?  The mystery is, as always, well done.  All the clues are there.  The supporting cast provides interesting options for suspects.  There is plenty of tension in the last quarter of the novel.


However....


I feel that this would have been better with the addition of Poirot's quirky musings and humor or Marple's cutting, almost snarky, observations.
