Something was missing

The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side  - Agatha Christie

The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side is one of the few books by Agatha Christie that I hadn't read before, but I saw the movie on Masterpiece Mystery so I knew the denouement. Like the last book, I thought there was something missing here. Maybe too much extraneous information about the change in small villages? It seemed to have gone on and on about the Development.

I also thought some loose ends weren't tied up, like who exactly killed the few people who died at the end. Was it the murderer? Why were those people killed? (I know why, but usually there's a detailed explanation as to how the murderer killed those people but it didn't happen here.)

The book is still good but you can definitely see this is at the end of Mrs. Christie's career.
