After the Funeral (Hercule Poirot, Bk 30) (aka: Funerals Are Fatal)
After the Funeral - Hercule Poirot, Bk 30 - aka: Funerals Are Fatal Author:Agatha Christie When Cora is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard's funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance. At the reading of Richard's will, Cora was clearly heard to say: "It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it? But he was murdered, wasn't he?&... more »quot; In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.
Well, 1953, but really good and fun "vintage" Christie! Unti the end when Poirot assembles the characters for his classic revelation, I was thinking at least one other person.
And LOTS AND LOTS of period details and subplots, etc.
I loved it!
