Location, Location, Location: Christie Challenge No. 3

At the request of my sister, this week’s challenge sees a return to our favourite author, Agatha Christie, where this time challengers have to pair up each setting with the correct Christie novel. It’s as simple as that. As always add your answers to the comments section below and the official answers post will be up next Friday, short of an alien invasion, ninja attack or more prosaically a power cut.

Good Luck!

    This looks tricky. About 15 years ago I would’ve found this laughably easy, but since then I have seriously neglected my Christie. The Sittaford Mystery for example is a novel I’ve read several times, yet I really can’t remember where it took place. But then I started thinking: it had snow in it, right? And where would you go for snow in the British islands? Well, Wales has mountains, so it must be Marchbolt, Wales. Or is it Lymstock? Even if you put a gun to my head I couldn’t tell you where Lymstock is or whether it even exists in reality or just as some fictional place. But I like the Wales solution better. Anyway, her are my choices:

    Rutherford Hall – 4:50 From Paddington
    Lymstock – The Moving Finger
    Lusitania – The Secret Adversary
    King’s Abbott – The Murder Of Roger Ackroyd
    Soldier Island – And Then There Were None
    Jerusalem – Appointment with Death
    Cairo – Death On The Nile
    Cape Town – The Man In The Brown Suit
    Merlinville-sur-Mer – Murder on the Links
    Village Near Dartmoor – Why Didn’t They Ask Evans
    Marchbolt, Wales – The Sittaford Mystery
    Istanbul – Murder on the Orient Express
    Andover – The A.B.C. Murders
    Gossington Hall – The Body in the Library
    Morocco – Destination Unknown
    St. Honore – A Caribbean Mystery
    Chipping Cleghorn – A Murder is Announced
    Dillmouth – Sleeping Murder

    Afraid I can only figure out 7 correctly, maybe 9 (guesses). Need to read more Christies.
