A fun read, as most of Agatha Christie's mysteries are. Keeps you guessing until the end, and the plot won't let you down.

One of the most enjoyable Poirot mysteries. There is nothing spectacular about it -- the setting is Christie's traditional upper crust English countryside, the characters are some of her more common types, Hastings is as dense as he always is as narrator -- but all of the elements come together wonderfully well. Even on rereading, the false trails Christie left led me astray, suspecting two individuals until 50 pages from the end when it was actually a third. In addition, Bob the dog is delightfully recognizable -- so much so that I wish Christie had included a few more animal characters in some of her mysteries.

Always amazes me when I find a Christie title I didn't know about after all this time! I happened to see the David Suchet PBS movie based on this title, and so even though I sort of knew the ending, it didn't diminish my enjoyment. One of her better efforts, I thought - great settings, great characters, Bob, the dog, is a winner! And a more satisfying resolution to Bob's fate than the movie. Even the minor characters are good. I highly recommend!
