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!
Love Christie and here she is in her finest!
This book is very good. I could not put it down. Of course, I can never figure out who the murderer is, but this one is very well written with a lot of characters. Very good read - esp on a rainy day!
This is one of the absolute best Agatha Christie murder mysteries. Defies solving it... that takes the fantastic Hercule Poirot!
Richard Abernethie died peacefully in his sleep at Enderby Hall. Why then did flighty Aunt Cora call it murder? Cora's own passing, shortly after, was far from peaceful -- and anything but natural.
A slice of wedding cake . . . an arrangement of wax flowers . . . a family with too many secrets to hide. Hercule Poirot is treading softly in the footsteps of an imaginative and deliberate killer. For, as the wily Belgian detective knows all too well, a frightened murderer is . . . deadly!
After two wealthy members of the Abernethie family are murdered, the family solicitor calls in master sleuth Hercule Poirot. Reissue.
Agatha Christie is an old favorite of mine. I love her books and this was no disappointment
Inheritance plays the major role in this when the patriarch dies suddenly. Poirot does it again in this tale in which everyone is suspect of a possible murder, a brutal murder, and a near murder. Auntie will keep you guessing until the final chapters, although the finale, as with most Poirot novels, may leave you less than satisfied
