Much as I enjoyed this, I have to say that I didn't think this was among Christie's best. I found the plot a little convoluted and hard to follow sometimes. I found some of the characters difficult to tell apart at times (although I think that's something that I sometimes struggle with, since I am terrible at remembering names). Perhaps it's because I haven't read a Christie for a while, and need to "acclimatize" myself to the style. But perhaps, it's simply that this was Agatha's first book.

here is the official Agatha Christie website. There are lots of fan-based sites too, as a search will reveal. here is one of the better ones.

This is the book that introduces the world to Hercule Poirot, the world famous Belgian detective and Capt. Hastings as well. It is typical Christie....unexpected and full of red herrings...Gotta love Agatha Christie.....
