The Seven Dials Mystery by Agatha Christie -- BOOK BEGINNINGS


Thank you for joining me for Book Beginnings on Fridays! Share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. You can also share from a book you want to highlight, even if you are not reading it right now.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Instagram, Twitter, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up. Find me on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter.

TIE IN: Sadly, Freda at Freda's Voice is taking a break from her weekly blog event, The Friday 56, a natural tie in with this event. The idea is to share a two-sentence teaser from page 56 of your book, or 56% of the way through an e-book or audiobook. Many people, including me, are still posting Friday 56 teasers, even while Freda takes a break. Please visit her Freda’s Voice blog even if there currently is no place to link your post.

That amiable youth, Jimmy Thesiger, came racing down the big staircase at Chimneys two steps at a time.

I always feel like reading vintage mysteries in the fall and winter -- cozy books for cozy weather! The Seven Dials Mystery is Agatha Christie's ninth book, published in 1929. In it, Christie brings back the characters from her fifth novel, The Secret of Chimneys, including Inspector Battle.

From The Seven Dials Mystery:
Despite Bill's knowledge of his friend's habits, she inclined to the belief that Mr. Thesiger would by now be in a fit state to receive visitors. She took a taxi to 103 Jermyn Street.

  7. I really enjoyed The Seven Dials - light-hearted in many ways & a clever mystery.

  8. I adore Agatha Christie's books and have actually been listening to some of her Poirot short stories while commuting to work. I agree autumn and winter are the perfect seasons for her mysteries! I hope you have a great weekend and thanks for hosting :)
