A Hercule Pierot mystery. It is the opening of the summer session at Meadowbrook, an exclusive institution for privileged young ladies. A fine lot. A dangerous one, too. First, a tyrannical teacher is found shot to death in the pavilion. Then an illustrious headmistress bites the dust, making it dangerously clear that someone has set out to scratch Meadowbroo's respectable veneer. And who better than Hercule Poirot--a detective schooled in crime--to declaw the killer?

My copy published 1976, copyright 1959. Vintage Christie. Mixes jewels, a foreign prince, and a girl's school in a delightful mishmash.

I haven't read much Christie, but every now and then I pick one up. Her plotting is always good and of course, you have to like Hercule Poirot! This won't be one of my favorites though, Poirot doesn't appear until about 2/3 of the way through the book. I also felt we didn't get enough description of his investigation. But the story is good and there is a good plot twist at the end.

Another great Agatha Christie prose. This 1959 novel begins in a fictional mideastern country. The country is on the brink of revolution, the young prince is planning his escape he entrusts the family fortune in gems to his closest friend to smuggle out of the country. Arrangements are made shortly before the two young men are killed. The Little Gray Cells strike again in this fabulous book "Cat Among the Pigeons." At a very respectable British boarding school three teachers all die while looking in the gym for some very mysterious foreign jewls put there by a man before his death. Mixed in with also a bit of spying at the beginning and Poirot's wit and wisdom this book is fabulous and has an unpredictable but fruitful ending! There is some humor in the narrative and amusement is provided by many of the characters.
