    A pretty good book

    This book was pretty good all the way through, but I really had higher expectations for the ending. I won't reveal it, but it turned out too much like a typical murder mystery, without the much more creative endings found in Murder on the Orient Express and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd.

    One of Poirot's best Cases!

    When Poirot is summoned to Nasse House by Mrs. Oliver, all he knows is that something's wrong. When a Murder Hunt ends in disaster, and his hostess goes missing, Poirot faces a very tough case. A great mystery, Agatha Christie at her best.

    I Also Recommend:

    One of the best Agatha Christie novels!

    This is my second favorite of the Agatha Christie novels. It was entertaining as always. The characters were less cookie cutter than many other books. (Country Squire, younger wife etc.) The plot kept me guessing though it wasn't as unexpected as it could have been.

    A dead man has a crazy wish, and Hercule Poirot is here to help!

    This book is one of the most facinating Agatha Christies yet! The imagry from her words are astounding and you feel like you are inside of the book as one of the characters, I would recomend this book to anyone who wants to just curl up with a really good mystery!

    It was not one of her best

    This book kept me going, but the ending was so horrible that I threw the book in the garbage.

    It was a really good book.

    I personally enjoyed this book. It wasn't challenging, but the descriptions were very detailed. There was quite a bit of suspense throughout the book which kept me wanting to read more. I would definately recommend this book to others.
