A revolution in the Middle East has a direct and deadly impact upon the summer term at Meadowbank, a picture-perfect girls' school in the English countryside. Prince Ali Yusuf, Hereditary Sheikh of Ramat, whose great liberalizing experiment - hospitals, schools, a Health Service - is coming to chaos, knows that he must prepare for the day of his exile. He asks his pilot and school friend, Bob Rawlinson, to care for a packet of jewels. Rawlinson does so, hiding them among the possessions of his niece, Jennifer Sutcliffe, who is bound for Meadowbank.

Rawlinson is killed before he can reveal the hiding place - or even the fact that he has employed his niece as a smuggler. But someone knows, or suspects, that Jennifer has the jewels. As murder strikes Meadowbank, only Hercule Poirot can restore the peace.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bea Alden | 2/17/2014

    " A nicely complicated mystery set in an English girls' school, with a variety of interesting characters, one of whom is not what he or she seems . . . but is not a match for Hercule Poirot, who reveals all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Miriam | 2/5/2014

    " I was kept in suspense the entire time. Clever and intriguing. Loved the reader Hugh Fraser! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Dianne Happel DiFrisco | 2/3/2014

    " I could never tire of reading about Hercule Poirot. A summer night, fluttering curtains, and Belgian man who at the opportune time says, "I don't approve of murder!" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Risa | 1/29/2014

    " CAT AMONG THE PIGEONS by AGATHA CHRISTIE (1973) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tia | 1/22/2014

    " This is my first Agatha Christie book, and I was really excited. It was pretty good- you did not see anything coming! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 1/20/2014

    " For anyone who is curious (like a cat!), I read the Bantam "Agatha Christie Mystery Collection" edition (it's a hardback with plain black cover & a gold silhouette of Agatha Christie). "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 1/18/2014

    " Not my favorite type of book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liz | 1/8/2014

    " Facinating mystery that is set in the priviledged world of an English girls school pre WW II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynette Morris | 12/30/2013

    " Great book to read on a rainy day with your tea and crumpets! Murder at a respectable private girls school, missing jewels and kidnapping - classic Christie and hugely enjoyable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Astrid Lim | 12/29/2013

    " Classic whodunnit setting in a boarding school. It's like reading Malory Towers with an additional twist :) I've read this one before but still the ending thrilled me a lot. My only complain is Hercule Poirot showed up way too late! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Briel | 12/25/2013

    " Found this at the house where we were staying and it was a perfect read. Took place at a girls' boarding school, which made it particularly fun. Have read it before, but still enjoyed trying to remember all of the twists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stella Belikiewicz | 12/6/2013

    " My favorite of the Poirot mysteries I have read. I'm not really sure why. I just found it at the right time, I guess. My favorite of the David Suchet films is The Mystery of the Egyptian Tomb. I love all the spooky Egyptology stuff. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bethany | 12/1/2013

    " It was alright. Pretty different from the other mysteries I've read by her. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Anja Thiede | 7/29/2013

    " I quite liked it, not my favourite Christie, though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Zach | 2/5/2013

    " "Cat Among the Pigeons" had a strong start but a weak finish. I like my Agatha Christie with a great deal of suspense in the third act, but "Cat Among the Pigeons" came up lacking. It's worth a read though, as it's an enjoyable novel. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lina Giglio | 12/15/2012

    " Ahhh, I love Agatha Christie!!! Her books are so captivating and I love them. She writes the best mysteries, and I love that the ending is always a surprise, and I love how I am always kept reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ali | 11/9/2012

    " Who doesn't love Agatha Christie "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rik | 8/31/2012

    " A good mystery, though I didn't realize it was a Poirot until he turned up two-thirds of the way through the book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy | 6/6/2012

    " I really liked this Hercule Poirot mystery. Some interesting twists, but don't recommend taking too much time to read it, since it loses its flair if you let it sit for a couple of days. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Terri | 3/7/2012

    " There are a LOT of loose ends in this book, along with some overly conspicuous clues and dialogue that are not at all like Agatha Christie. Could it be that she had a ghostwriter helping her at some point? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vikki | 10/26/2011

    " I first read this book when I was in my early teens. I think it was one of the first few Agatha Christie books that I read. I enjoyed it just as much now as I did back then, if not more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Gheeta | 10/19/2011

    " always a good read. :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariel | 8/9/2011

    " Not her best, but pretty good. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Corrine | 6/13/2011

    " I have loved rereading all the old mystery books that really started it all....

    " I had read this when in my teenage time. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alex | 5/8/2011

    " I liked the PBS Masterpiece Mystery version more. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Desti | 4/14/2011

    " Hercule Poirot baru muncul di sepertiga terakhir, pelakunya tertebak tapi paparan ceritanya asik. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly | 3/19/2011

    " For anyone who is curious (like a cat!), I read the Bantam "Agatha Christie Mystery Collection" edition (it's a hardback with plain black cover & a gold silhouette of Agatha Christie). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sandst | 3/18/2011

    " How incredibly British. Interesting take of a mystery in an all girls' boarding school, albeit too predictable. (You could determine who the killer is a mile away!) I think what makes it fun to read are the in depth character studies, which gives this book a bit more soul. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Trisha | 3/8/2011

    " great book. got about 1/4 of the way through it only to realize I'd read it before..... I'm such a fan of Hercule Poirot! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dawn | 2/7/2011

    " Not my favorite type of book. "
