Intriguing, kind of grisly mystery Hercule Poirot becomes interested in a case of a murdered man stuffed into a spanish chest. While it looks like a close case, Poirot investigates further as he believes the police have the wrong man in custody.

Hercule Does It Again! (Of Course) Of the 82 detective novels written by Dame Agatha Christie, I have tracked down and read 79 of them. Each were unique and intriguing. Her short stories are just as wonderful. This one didn’t disappoint and left me guessing until the end. I’ve read many of the great detective writers and in the case of about 50% of them, I’ve figured it out before the Big Reveal. Not so, with Dame Agatha! In fact, never could I guess. This one was no different.Well worth reading!

The Mystery of the Spanish Chest I found this book to be very slow and uneventful. I would not have chosen this book if I had known the whole story was Hercule Poirot talking to himself with very little interaction with any of the other characters. If u want a book you can read in a lazy afternoon, this book may be for you. Otherwise skip this one and go on to a better Agatha Christie book. She has many fabulous books on Amazon to choice from.
