Mark Easterbrook learns of a mysterious organisation called the Pale Horse, and in the village of Much Deeping he is told of the organisation's supernatural connections.

Great Stuff

A creative and original plot. Not your usual whodunnit but still enjoyable. Characters were relateable and well acted. I usually stick to my Poirot stories but i enjoyed this. Is it just me or did Christie have a strange interest in the supernatural/occult.....

Different yet the same

There are two radio versions of this story. This one didn't follow the book. Somethings were changed some things removed. (Don't want to spoil so I will not say what is different). I would recommend getting both radio versions of the Pale Horse as it is sort of two different stories. I am biased as this is one of my favorite stories of Ms Agatha.

Good But Not A Favorite

This one really threw me. I never fully got engrossed in the story like I wanted to. I figured it might be the story but after thinking about it I feel its more the dramatization itself that threw me the most. It was hard to keep up with who was who and it was hard to realize what clues was important and what wasn't. The ending completely threw me though I did always suspect the man that was pronounced the murderer so it made since. Overall good but not amazing.
