Considered by many to be her greatest work, it certainly is one of her finest. Agatha Christie herself said there are only four starters and any one of them might have committed the crime. One detective per suspect is a great idea, although as one of them is Poirot, there's really only one. Agatha Christie thought the limited number of suspects might knock out the surprise. But it doesn't. In many ways it easier to keep up with who's who. Poirot's thought process is as baffling as ever, and full of clues if only we could spot them. The really big clue comes though in the… Christie at her best! Nina Jon is the author of the Jane Hetherington’s Adventures in Detection crime and mystery series.
