When Cora Lansquenet is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard's funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance. At the reading of Richard's will, Cora was clearly heard to say, "It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it. . . . But he was murdered, wasn't he?"

In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery. . . .

This title was previously published as Funerals Are Fatal.

    " Did not solve this one before the end. In retrospect, there were clues, and I picked up on some of them, but had no idea what they meant. Curse you, Christie, I'll get you next time. "

    " Not my favorite Agatha Christie story but not too bad. I did figure out whodunit and a few other related details. "

    " The family all become suspects after the seemingly natural death Richard Abernethie's funeral when his sister says he was murdered. The next day she is murdered.

    Poirot discovers the truth in the miraculous. No he didn't sort of way "

    " This one definitely had a surprise ending. I particularly liked the atmosphere as well. "

    " Very good, though if you've read a lot of Christie, you'll notice a few of her favorite 'tricks'.

    I only gave it 3 stars as it seemed a trifle padded. You don't get the final and most important clue until very near the end, and then from there it's just a wrap-up. "

    " Another decent, Poirot novel. Well worth a go . "
