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.

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.

This is an excellent Agatha Christie novel complete with twists and turns that keep the reader (and Hercules Poirot) puzzled until the end. I thoroughly enjoyed re-reading this novel.

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.

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.

1, possibly 2, bodies and oodles of red herrings make up a great mystery.

I bought thirty paperback books authored by Agatha Christie (Hercule Poirot novels) years ago. I have read most of them already. I highly recommend Agatha Christie to everyone interested in the crime fiction genre. She is still the very best, in my opinion. I give five stars to all her novels.
