Hercule Poirot was invited to the Hollow to tea, but found a murder waiting for him instead.

The victim—an extraordinarily vital, emotionally complex doctor—was the last person anyone expected to see lying dead by the pool. And his meek, befuddled wife was the last person anyone would expect to see standing over him with a gun. Did she really shoot her husband? Or is she merely a second victim in a brilliantly planned plot by a daring, cunning murderer?

To find the answers, Poirot delves deep into the character of the victim and those in his sphere, sorting through colorful personalities and tangled emotions. But in doing so, he finds himself thwarted by a person who he calls “one of the best antagonists that I have ever had.”

Probably the best Christie This book is very different from other Christie’s book and is much better. For once, her characters are not simple caricatures easy to forget. They have real, deep feelings, they suffer, and the reader believe in that. The book acts like a charm that makes the reader enter in it deeper than in other Christie’s work. The mystery plot is surprising but not really important. What is important is the picture of three or four key characters (only women, by the way). That makes this book closer…
