This is the 11th Hercule Poirot full length novel that was first published in 1936. It is a very good mystery and has been made into a movie in 2018 starring John Malkovich as Poirot. I prefer the version starring David Suchet as Poirot.
Captain Hastings narrates except for certain chapters where Christie switches to third person. The third person chapters featured the apparent murderer. I have always enjoyed the stories narrated by Captain Hastings. This is no exception. We get Captain Hastings views on the clues. The reader must be very alert to understand the clues and be able to interpret them. And if the reader fails, Poirot will explain at the end. I think this mystery certainly belongs among the top 10 Poirot mysteries.
