Remind me not to attend a cocktail party, if Hercule Poirot is on the guest list.
In this twisting labyrinth of a murder mystery, three amateur sleuths attempt to solve two very extraordinary deaths. Both occurred at dinner parties with the same basic guest list. And, while the trio scoured England and Wales for clues, M. Poirot sat quietly in the gallery, acting only as an advisor. It is not until another, or possibly two more, deaths are reported that the great detective is asked to be more that a Belgian Yoda.
Once again, I thought I knew who the murderer was, and once again I was wrong. This is why I love Agatha Christie. The reader WILL enjoy this thrilling roller coaster ride, and will not be disappointed by the surprising conclusion :o)
A great book, as are all of Christie's work. Just an FYI, this book is also known as "Three Act Tragedy."
