Review :

I am a huge Agatha Christie fan. I have read almost all her books. Poirot is my favorite. I love his integrity and demeanor. His stories never fail to entertain. It is a fast paced book . The sequence of events keeps one glued to the book. This book is based on a beautiful setting, all the character have excellent dialogues and the climax is outstanding. This book is almost 100 years old but the language is very lucid.Even today, Agatha Christie's books are loved world over. She is still the Queen of Crime and suspense!
