It is more than difficult to pre figure the outcome of a Agatha Christie novels. That is only part of the fun in such a great author. No wonder she is not only the Queen of the mystery writers but the best selling writer of all time.

This is a great book. The mystery is simple but sseeing the answer is almost impossible... definitely recommended for any fan of Poirot and Christie.

This is one of Poirot's baffling and unique cases of his career. The murder of a mysterious stranger set in a blind schoolteacher's house with five clocks set at 4:13 and the crime discovered by a typist who was requested to come to the house. I love the suburban neighborhood of Wilbraham Crescent during the 1960's. The neighbors (and possible killers) are great too. It has humor, romance between two important characters, suspense, intrigue, three murders, and a very clever solution to this unusual case with amazing twists and just like I was you will be amazed by the killer's identity and motive.

I read this book and another book at the same time. I started the other book first and it was really interesting. Then I started this book when I was about half way through the other one because I like to read two books at once. I completely forgot about the other book! I couldn't stop reading this book!

Over the years, when discussing this book with friends and family, I've found this book to be one of the most polarizing in the Christie canon. Much like "The Big Four", people either love it or loath it. Personally, I love it. As you read it, it appears to quickly grow more and more complicated. The initial murder seems really intricate, and additional murders add to the confusion. Toss in the potential MI6-type complications indicated by Lamb, and the whole thing seems a right big mess. Enter, Poirot. Using a very deft touch, Christie brings in Poirot to give a gentle reminder to Lamb (and so to the reader) to stop and take a breath. Think about what has been said, sometimes repeatedly, by various people. You soon realize there may be 2 distinct crimes within what, initially, seemed to be 1 giant mess. Patterns are key. The little grey cells prevail.

The story was somewhat interesting, though not Christie's best. However, the copy editing left a lot to be desired. In particular, Hercule Poirot's name was consistently spelled as Hercules. That had to be from the ebook conversion. Very annoying.
