Poirot does it again
Although aging, Hercule Poirot proves that he still has what it takes to not only solve the crime but do it in a timely manner beneficial to those involved.
First time reading a Poirot story. I found it to be an interesting story that keeps the reader guessing until the end. I plan to read more A. Christie, especially with the character Poirot.
Classic mystery story
Great reading. Curled up with this book would be a wonderful way to spend an afternoon.
Great mystery, missing diagrams
This version of the book is incomplete. It's missing some important illustrations. I think there are four missing items: two floor plans and two fragments of written documents. The absence of one of the fragments is likely to cause a good deal of bewilderment.
The novel itself is a quick read and quite enjoyable.
