A solid 4.5 stars. Super easy read as it is told from Hasting’s point of view, but still full of the classic twists and turns that have made all mysteries Christie’s written infamous.
Another great Poirot mystery and my favorite combo of Poirot and Hastings. I tried something new with this 8th book in the series and took notes on characters and evidence while I read the book. This proved to be a fun way to keep up with those little gray cells that Poirot uses. While I didn't reach the correct conclusion by the time of the big reveal, I was in the ballpark.
Pure and utter genius! I have yet another favourite Poirot book. Agatha Christie writes with her fabulous sass (as usual) and my gosh the twists in this one; I could've never guessed them! The perfect way to end my Poirot and Hastings reads, though I know it's not truly the end, because I'll re read them all! ;)
