Synopses & Reviews
Eccentric mystery lover Ariadne Oliver's weekend game of mock murder is a big hit. But if it's just a game, then why all the blood? Luckily, one of the players is Belgian sleuth, Hercule Poirot.
"The solution is one of colossal ingenuity." (Times Literary Supplement)
Agatha Christie is still mystery's #1 bestselling author.
At the request of his friend Ariadne (an eccentric mystery lover based on Christie herself), Hercule arrives at a sprawling estate to partake in a weekend game of mock murder. But when the victim appears far too dead, the game stops and the detective work begins.
