One of the most modern Christies. It's not bad.

In this book Poirot is assisted by mystery writer Ariadne Oliver. Refreshingly, Poirot has moments of self-doubt as he follows the convoluted clues. A good read.

I did not like this Christie novel, maybe because the characters aren't likeable and the setting of the British 60's has no appeal to me. Three young women share a flat and the third girl is the one that we are supposed to care about when she goes missing, but she is such a boring character that I couldn't really care. Hercule Poirot is the detective in this book, and although I really like the Poirot books, this one just is not one I did.

From the moment he meets her, the young girl strikes Hercule Poirot as peculiar. In fact, everything about her - from her tousled appearance to her perplexed stare - seems too strange; downright abnormal to him. Yet it's her vague confession to a murder she's not even entirely sure she committed that really throws the little Belgian detective for a loop. In all his years, Monsieur Poirot has never encountered such an unusual child.

The mystery becomes even darker and more complicated when he finds out that the odd little duck has suddenly flown the proverbial coop. What's more: No one knows where she may have gone, nor does anyone seem to care that she's missing. So, the question is: Just what's her secret? No one's talking. But Monsieur Poirot suspects that the answer is going to be a killer...

Over the past several years, I've actually read a total of eight of Agatha Christie's books - this is the fourth book that I have read in her Hercule Poirot Series. In my opinion, this was certainly an enjoyable read for me, but still incredibly intricate and confusing in parts. This perhaps wasn't Agatha Christie's best book in my opinion, but in typical Agatha Christie style; I was completely in the dark when it came to revealing the 'who-done-it' moment in the story. Overall, I would give this book a B+!

A young lady hates her stepmother. What else in English literature could be more appropriate! But, in this case, she is deluded to thinking that she has murdered someone, or at least attempted to murder said stepmother. After meeting Poirot she declines his help. Then, she disappears and Poirot works himself into the case. But, he can uncover no murder. After a rather rambling and convoluted tale, and the arrest of the culprit, we are treated to a detailed explanation of how it was all perpetrated. Oh yes, there was a murder that, true to form, was determined a suicide (but we know better), and a follow on murder as well (There are always at least two.).

Pub. 1984, copyright 1966. Another of Agatha Christie's interesting sagas of Hercule Poirot.

this is a classic Hercule Poirot agatha christie mystery detective novel set in the swinging sixties in London during the mod squad. While reading it, it reminded me of some of the funny old Dragnet episodes. A fun quick read that leaves you guessing who-done-it.
