Publisher Comments:

The most controversial novel Christie ever wrote is back with a new look.

Christie sets up the traditional rules of mystery only to shatter them in a whodunit that still startles to this day.

Synopsis:

This is the Hercule Poirot novel that startled fans, polarized critics, shocked the Detection Club (of which Christie was a member) and solidified her reputation as the queen of crime.

Synopsis:

"A truly startling denouement" (New York Herald Tribune)

"The most brilliant of deceptions" (Julian Symons)

Christie's most famous-and most controversial-mystery...

About the Author

Dame Agatha Christie is the world’s best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over two billion copies worldwide and have been translated into 44 foreign languages.

During a writing career that spanned more than half a century, she created two of the world’s most famous detectives. Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. The author of 79 novels and short story collections, she was also an accomplished playwright--one of her 14 plays, The Mousetrap, is the longest-running play in history. She published six romantic novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott and wrote four non-fiction books, including an autobiography. Several of her books, including Murder on the Orient Express and Death on the Nile, were made into hugely successful films. She died in 1976.

It's always a pleasure to read an Agatha Christie book, especially one that features the odd but endearing Hercule Poirot.

This particular novel has all the requisite Christie elements: the shocking murder, the numerous suspects, the red herring, Poirot's use of his 'little grey cells,' and, finally, the assembly of the suspects to catch the murderer. There is one difference though; there's a twist at the end which you may or may not see coming.

Whether or not you do, you'll have fun reading this novel. An added bonus is Christie's dry wit.
