What a fun look at a standalone Christie Why Didn t They Ask Evans is definitely full of twists and turns I also didn t realize the guilty party until the end of the book The characters of Bobby Jones and Frankie Derwent Lady Frances are delightful and some parts of this book remind me of The Seven Dials Mystery which is not a bad thing Why Didn t They Ask Evans begins with Bobby Jones and the local doctor playing golf when they realize that a man has fallen off a nearby cliff and is near death Bobby stays with the man and is there to witness his last words Why didn t they ask Evans Bobby goes through the man s pocket and finds a photograph of a young woman that looks slightly otherworldly A man comes by and offers to stay with the now dead man while Bobby runs off home When an inquest comes up Bobby feels slightly disappointed by the dead man s family and then eventually remembers the man s last words and sends off a letter about it From there though things heat up with someone trying to murder Bobby His childhood friend Lady Frances Frankie starts to think that something about the dead man is dangerous and could lead Bobby to his own end The two of them put their heads together and managed to track down the man that Bobby ended up leaving the dead man alone with and from there meet dangerous characters all over the place.I really liked Bobby He seems to have a harebrained idea with his friend Badger that name but definitely doesn t want to give up until he finds out who possibly murdered the man he came across Frankie is similar to previous Christie female characters who keep on investigating even if it leads to their peril I loved the writing and the flow of the book improves after we get out of the first couple of chapters It was a bit slow going at first.The setting of the book has it taking place before World War II It was interesting since most of Poirot s and Miss Marple s stories take place after World War II,The ending was definitely a shocker I was happy though with how things ended up. . Amusing, mostly light if you ignore the perfectly nice people who get murdered along the way mystery featuring for once no actual detective Not even amateur sleuths like Christie s Tommy and Tuppence here we have a bored Bright Young Thing and her reluctant pal investigating what everyone else says was an accidental death The title seems like a spoiler but view spoiler there are no actual boomerangs in this book hide spoiler An interesting plot full of twists and turns and some interesting coincidences The lovable pair of amateur detectives Bobby and Frankie end up solving a gruesome death using their wits and some nice deductions And of course you have a great end when it is revealed all in a grand fashion Must read. Probably not one of Agatha Christie s best books but I enjoyed it just the same Frankie and Bobbie are a delightful pair and I loved their ending The story is fun and I didn t actually guess one of the guilty parties.I believe this was one of her earlier books and it was not as polished as her work usually is I also had to suspend belief often than usual In the first few chapters when the doctor and Bobbie find a dying man on a cliff the doctor goes for help leaving the unqualified young man in charge Pretty sure the young man should have run for help leaving the suitably qualified doctor to tend the dying Never mind though It was a good story and it was fun A very pleasant light read. Rating 3.5 of fiveAnnoying Just plain annoying Frankie and Bobby are bumbling amateurs Lady Frances Derwent, daughter of the Earl of Marchington, knows Bobby, the son of the Vicar of Marchbolt, from little on up They meet again when Bobby s found a dying man under the cliffs near his home He and Frankie decide that they ll look into the matter because there are some loose and flapping ends that Bobby knows but had no chance to say at the inquest.Hijinks quite predictably ensue.It was 80 years ago that the book was conceived and written, but the kinds of dumbass errors the amateurs make just got up my nose So much so that I was really hard pressed to keep reading I did, oh my, didn t I just, but I kept shouting at the book thank goodness my roommate is in rehab when they pulled yet another bonehead maneuver with their ridiculously overcomplicated plans that shouldn t have worked while overlooking commonsensical things like doors being locked or unlocked from the outside.Well anyway, there it is, I can t change Dame Agatha s writing and I can t unread it.There have been two TV adaptations The first, in 1980, starred Francesca Annis and James Warwick later stars of the very good Partners in Crime series featuring Dame Agatha s amateur sleuths Tommy and Tuppence and was supremely faithful to the book It was three hours of pleasure The baddie was bad, the bumbling was still annoying, the goodies wore two shoes But it was beautiful and it was well done.But Then Came Marple.Horrifying They totally screwed the pooch Miss Marple, played at that point by Julia MacKenzie, was grafted onto the story, much surgery was done to the plot, and the characters of Frankie and Bobby were prettified Sean Biggerstaff, who played Bobby, was Oliver Wood in the Potter franchise into blandness I d deduct at least two stars for the awfulness of this adaptation but it s just not fair to blame the Dame for what happened thirty years after she popped her clogs In general, I d give the whole fechachte thing a miss unless you are a Francesca Annis fan me in which case hunt up the 1980 telefilm.
