An interesting Poirot mystery with an unexpected turn at the end.
A good book that makes excellent use of deception. It wasn't my favorite of the Poirot books, but definitely worth reading.
The eighth of Christie's book to feature Hercule Poirot, I think the solution to this one is quite surprising.
Hercule Poirot is vacationing on the Cornish coast when he meets Nick Buckly. Nick is the young and reckless mistress of End House, an imposing structure perched on the rocky cliffs of St. Loo.
Poirot has taken a particular interest in the young woman who has recently narrowly escaped a series of life-threatening accidents. Something tells the Belgian sleuth that these so-called accidents are more than just mere coincidences or a spate of bad luck. It seems all too clear to him that someone is trying to do away with poor Nick, but who? And, what is the motive? In his quest for answers, Poirot must delve into the dark history of End House. The deeper he gets into his investigation, the more certain he is that the killer will soon strike again. And, this time, Nick may not escape with her life.
Agatha Christie is a master mystery teller. The book has twists and turns as the reader tries to keep up with Hercule Poirot as he tries to remain one step ahead of the would-be murderer.
another great classic mystery.
