Hercule Poirot at his Best!! Yellow Iris is a short story by Agatha Christie involving the detective Hercule Poirot.

Short story to Entertain This is a quirky little story about Hercule Poirot and his little grey cells. Agatha Christie does such a fantastic job with this Belgian detective that he becomes a person in your circle of relationships! The setting is a dinner party, and revolves around a flower which turns out not to be a flower at all. This is a quick read, very entertaining, and you can think along with Poirot as he solves this mystery!

A real puzzler. The whole story was sort of a dream sequence. Not easy to get hold of. Mrs. Christie seemed to be toying with her readers, teasing us with very, limited information and letting our minds come to whatever conclusions we we .wished with whatever information we were given. I was left wanting more, but not getting it. A good story, but needed a fuller set of data.
