While playing golf, Bobby Jones and Dr. Thomas discover a dying man at the base of a cliff. Before he dies, the man manages to get out the words, "Why didn't they ask Evans?" Days later, remembering things that don't seem to add up about the death, Bobby decides to investigate, and his friend Frances Derwent immediately agrees to help. Was it a misstep that sent a handsome stranger plummeting to his death over a cliff? Or was it a something more sinister? Now the two ameateur sleuths are on a wild and perilous pursuit to discover who Evans is, what it was he wasn't asked and why the mysterious inquiry has put their own lives in mortal danger.

This was a great mystery novel! I used to read mysteries all the time, but this is the first time in a while that I picked one up. I'm definitely going back into them again!
"Why Didn't They Ask Evans?" is one of Agatha Christie's stand-alone novels, and I found it to be an excellent mystery. There was a great cast of characters, and I wish I could see more of Bobby and Frankie. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a quick "whodunit" read.

This sublime novel is a subtle and ingenious detective story. I could'n find out the killer till the end of the book. I think its great to read different characters after Hercule Poirot and this book is one of the best novel from her. I couldn't wait an hour to finish the book it was thrilling.
