This book features Hercule Poirot, Agatha Christie's famous "Belgian, not French" detective. This book is a great read and the ending is one that will definately surprise you.

Agatha Christie is so hilarious! She writes Hercule Poirot as such a dry and conceited man, but that's what makes him so funny. I loved this story. Christie is great at red herrings to throw you off the real trail. But Hercurle Poirot always gets to the truth!

Classic Agatha Christie novel

I was disappointed by this Poirot novel at first; both Hastings and Japp are back in full force, still thinking Poirot has gotten senile at last. But even though the second time through I remembered the culprit from the start, the mechanics of the crime are quite ingenious, and the letter from the killer that closes the novel had me chuckling. All in all, a strong outing for Poirot.
