Staff Reviews


A masterpiece of a mystery. Christie will make you think from beginning to end and question everything. The shocking ending left me reading the book twice in a row, just make sure you avoid any spoilers! Hercule Poirot is one of the most endearing detectives and you will want more of his antics when you are done. This novel made me fall in love with the mystery genre and shows off Christie's talents as the true Queen of Crime.
