Bobby Jones cannot play golf to save his life and yet he insists on trying. While out on the links he loses his ball over a fog-shrouded cliff. While searching for it Bobby is shocked to find instead a mangled and dying man. Had he fallen off the cliff in the fog? Was he pushed? Bobby has stumbled onto a mystery. Of course he has! This is an Agatha Christie murder mystery, after all. When the man opens his eyes and with all lucidity asks Bobby, "Why didn't they ask Evans?" Bobby is haunted by the question. Exactly who is Evans and what was the question that should have been asked? Bobby shares this strange incident with his friend, Lady Francis Derwent, and together they decide there is more to the story. Their suspicions deepen when Bobby learns a photograph the dead man had been carrying was swapped to hide his true identity. Alex Pritchard is actually Alan Carstairs. Soon there after and out of the blue, Bobby is offered a job in Buenos Ares. When he doesn't leave England someone tries to poison his beer. It is obvious someone wants Bobby off the case, but who and why? Like a good Scooby mystery, the villain wraps up all the clues.
As an aside, there were details in the story that didn't make sense. If I found a dying man I wouldn't ask someone else to stay with the body while I left to go play an organ at my father's church. I think my father would understand my absence given I had just witnessed a man die in front of me. Also, Frankie gained entry into the suspected murderer's home by faking a car accident. Under the guise of having a concussion a doctor in on the ruse tells the Bassington-ffrench family Frankie "cannot be moved." She is to stay with them until she is well. However, in no time at all she is making friends with Mrs. Bassington-ffrench and playing tennis. Nonetheless, this was an enjoyable story. ( )

What a delightful change in venue with Why Didn’t They Ask Evans by Agatha Christie! This novel features Bobby Jones and Lady Frances “Frankie” chasing around Scotland and England in search of the murderer of Alan Carstairs. Agatha Christie amuses herself and her readers with multiple identities of several characters. Thank goodness that all is explained in the final chapter, or I would be lost. Bobby Jones and Doctor Thomas unknowingly discover a body while they are golfing. Both men think the unfortunate man fell to his death due to the mist. Bobby and his friend Frankie discover that the man is not Alex Pritchard, but an Alan Carstairs. This and the fact that twice Bobby falls under suspicious adventures thrust the pair into investigating the death of Alan. Many readers have ventured that Bobby and Frankie remind the reader of Tuppence and Tommy, but these new sleuths outshine Tuppence and Tommy. Agatha Christie mentions the class divisions of Frankie and Bobby. And the criminals delve into drugs and deception. A fun read. ( )

It's probably not my favorite of Christie's works, but I love the way her work always leaves you pursuing connections and saying eureka ( )

Bobby Jones teed up his ball, gave a short preliminary waggle, took the club back slowly, then brought it down and through with the rapidity of lightning.
