I like a good detective story he said But you know they begin in the wrong place They begin with the murder But the murder is the end The story begins long before that years before sometimes with all the causes and events that bring certain people to a certain place at a certain time on a certain dayWhat makes a good detective story Suspense Atmosphere An outrageous plot Memorable characters TwistsAs with many others of Christie s stories Towards Zero relies on a set of characters the type of which is already familiar to Christie s readers The setting a version of country house and plot errmmurder is also in line with the expectation of the typical Christie novel What I had not expected was for Christie to actually uestion the whole setup of her typical story by proclaiming that the story cannot stop with the detection of the murderer but that it needs to reveal the background in order for the story of the murder to be understoodIt s almost like Christie used this story to prove that the police investigation needs to include an understanding of the psychology of the characters involved in order to successfully solve the crimeBut did she need to do this Surely the fact that her Marple and Poirot act as the psychologists to aid the inspectors in her other books is proof enough that there is a partnership between the two Towards Zero does not feature Marple or Poirot but instead has Inspector Battle who takes on the role of the enlightened policeman We learn early on that he has little time for amateur psychology and later we learn that he is also capable of trickery although Christie stays away from implying that there is a member of the police who would use trickery to get a murderer to confess No she added a different character to do thisWhich brings me to one of the few complaints I have about the story the multitude of characters There are so many of them that it is hard to keep track of Some are mentioned but then disappear in almost the next scene with no relevance to the storyWere they included to merely bulk out the pagesI mean I really enjoyed the main plot and characters but I wish she had spent time fleshing them out rather than just throwing new characters in the mix Maybe getting to learn about the characters would have also helped the ending which reminded me of the somewhat creepy relationship in Du Maurier s Rebeccaview spoiler You needn t said Audrey softly look so stern He said gently as he came towards her Last time I had my hands on you you felt like a bird struggling to escape You ll never escape now She said I shall never want to escape hide spoiler
