    Just finished a re-read of this classic. I remember the first time I read it, the twist at the end knocked my socks off!

As in all of her cases involving Inspector Hercule Poirot, Christie unearths layer upon layer of the case, leaving her readers guessing until the very end. Just when you think whodunit, she throws in a twist by revealin...

    Wow just Wow! Agatha Christie had me from the first page, hook line & sinker and she never lost my attention until the very end. No wonder this is considered to be one of her very best.I do not want to say too much about this book, I mean the title pretty much tells you what it is about and to go to...
