16366

Endless Night by Agatha Christie is a standalone novel first published in 1967. The narrator is Michael Rogers, a young working class man with grand dreams and ambitions. He meets Ellie Guteman, a lonely but wealthy young woman, in Gypsy’s Acre, a scenic ruin with stunning views which appears to have a curse hanging over it. As relationship develops it seems that Michael will have both the girl and his dream of a perfect house on Gypsy’s Acre. The story is told in Christie’s straightforward prose, the plot full of suspense, and the tale itself a stunning example of the way a reader’s perceptions of characters can shift and change as a story progresses.
