I've seen bits and pieces of movies based on Agatha Christie's stories but never read any of them. So this will be my first...I've heard nothing but good things about her, thus my expectations are fairly high.Nadina, the Russian dancer who had taken Paris by storm, swayed to the sound of the applause, bowed and bowed again. her narrow black eyes narrowed themselves still more, the long line of her scarlet mouth curved faintly upwards. Enthusiastic Frenchmen continued to beat the ground appreciatively as the curtain fell with a swish, hiding the reds and blues and magentas of the bizarre decors.
I'm only a handful of pages in. As for the beginning, it's from the prologue and I like it. Nadina gives off a slight femme fatale vibe, right?
