Book Review of Hallowe'en Party (Hercule Poirot, Bk 32)

Hallowe'en Party (Hercule Poirot, Bk 32)
reviewed on + 40 more book reviews

In a picturesque British village, a fun-filled Halloween party for young teens culminates with the murder of a girl found drowned in an apple-bobbing tub. John Moffat delivers a strong and accomplished performance. Especially provocative is his portrayal of Christie\'s hero, Hercule Poirot, as he calculates, hypothesizes and interrogates one peculiar suspect after another. Moffatt intelligently assesses each suspect, carefully providing insightful portrayals of emotional complications, personality flaws and greedy motives.
