yet another perfect mystery book by Christie I love Poirot- every thing is always so logical and methodical, as though he is your mentor and you the reader are to deduce the solution to this mystery puzzle on your own. I suppose this is why I like Hastings so much… bar his penchant for pretty girls, we are all as frustrated as Hastings waiting for Poirot to walk us through the conclusion.

A lighter toned Christie I enjoyed this Agatha Christie which is a bit lighter in tone than some others. It may be my favorite appearance of Hastings with Poirot. His imagined conversations with the dog are fun to read. The murder is vintage Christie-not the best but not boring either.

David Suchet upstaged by Bob the fox terrier This Hercule Poirot mystery exhibits delightful interplay among skilled actors. However, the actor who steals the show is Bob, the lox terrier, with his endearing expressions and range of actions and tricks. Bob is the only witness to attempts on the life of Emily Arundel. Aunt Emily is elderly and wealthy, with a crowd of young and needy relatives salivating over the prospect of inheritances. One of them decides to accelerate Aunt Emily’s decline and eventually succeeds.
