Author: Agatha Christie

Series: Hercule Poirot #8

4 stars

Rating: 4 out of 5.

From Goodreads:

*Agatha Christie’s ingenious murder mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

Nick Buckley was an unusual name for a pretty young woman. But then she had led an unusual life. First, on a treacherous Cornish hillside, the brakes on her car failed. Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder missed her by inches. Later, an oil painting fell and almost crushed her in bed. Upon discovering a bullet-hole in Nick’s sun hat, Hercule Poirot decides the girl needs his protection. At the same time, he begins to unravel the mystery of a murder that hasn’t been committed. Yet.*

My Thoughts

Right after the events Poirot is hoping for a relaxing holiday with his old pal Hastings only to find himself drawn into another case, but this time he might have found it in time to prevent a murder! This is a return to a fast paced, twisting and turning mystery filled with red herrings, double dealings and mistaken identities.

I loved the Poirot, Hastings dynamic in this one. We get the Poirot sass straight from the start! He really doesn’t let Hastings away with much in this one. I really liked how all the evidence in this one built up to an interesting twist. I feel we got a lot more insight into how Poirot works.
