Cat Among the Pigeons (Hercule Poirot, Bk 33)
skipbo3 avatar reviewed on + 31 more book reviews

Another great Agatha Christie prose. This 1959 novel begins in a fictional mideastern country. The country is on the brink of revolution, the young prince is planning his escape he entrusts the family fortune in gems to his closest friend to smuggle out of the country. Arrangements are made shortly before the two young men are killed. The Little Gray Cells strike again in this fabulous book "Cat Among the Pigeons." At a very respectable British boarding school three teachers all die while looking in the gym for some very mysterious foreign jewls put there by a man before his death. Mixed in with also a bit of spying at the beginning and Poirot's wit and wisdom this book is fabulous and has an unpredictable but fruitful ending! There is some humor in the narrative and amusement is provided by many of the characters.
