Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from LOVED IT! I loved it from page one. Of course it's not as epic and intriguing as ''And then there were none'', but it was good enough and still intriguing. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who loves detective stories!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Poirot, the genius!!! Even if you are not a Christie reader, you MUST have this book. This novel features Agatha Christie's funny little Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot and Christie's readers, I am sure, know that this little man embodies exceptional intellectual ability. The ending is so damn surprising that it blows your mind away! This is my second favourite Christie novel, coming second to "And Then There Were None."

Editorial Reviews

“It’s tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world’s had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special.”
