This has a complex, convoluted, yet spurious plot that can only be found in one of auntie's novels. Yes, the culprit will confess to Poirot at the end a la uncle Erle's courtroom dramatics, sans the courtroom. Also this has an unlikely culprit who does his dirty work impersonating a professional. The intrigue is here, but the denouement is as ludicrous as ever.

On the surface, a throw-back to Christie's earlier days, when the mysteries were often thrillers; but like The Seven Dials Mystery, Christie takes this thriller to unexpected places. . .

Title of book is: The Patriotic Murders. Title of first chapter is One, Two, Buckle My Shoe. FOr some unknown reason, the ISBN brings up the title of first chapter instead of title of book.

It was shortly after his 12:30 appointment that Dr. Morley was found with a bullet through his right temple. The gun was on the floor beside him. The authorities were satisfied that the amiable old dentist had shot himself. Hurcule Poirot was not. But who could have murdered him? One of Dr. Morley's glamorous patients? His hard-drinking partner? His secretary's disgruntled boyfriend? All Poirot has is a hunch, too many clues, and a killer who will not be satisfied with only one victim.

This was the first Agatha Christie book I ever read, and I enjoyed it a lot. It presented a large cast of suspects, all with the motive and opportunity to murder a certain dentist. The ending is very unexpected.
