The house guests at Styles seemed perfectly harmless to Captain Hastings: There was his own daughter Judith, an inoffensive ornithologist called Norton, dashing Mr. Allerton, brittle Miss Cole, Doctor Franklin and his fragile wife Barbara, Nurse Craven, Colonel Luttrell and his charming wife Daisy, and the charismatic Boyd-Carrington.

So Hastings was shocked when Poirot declared that one of them was a five-times murderer. True, the ageing detective was crippled with arthritis, but had his deductive instincts finally deserted him?

    " My favorite Christie so far (out of ten or so). Hercule Poirot's last case gets to the root of what differentiates an Agatha Christie mystery from so many other writers' -- the source of the solution is always the motive. Poirot questions what drives people to commit murder and finds some rather troubling answers. Highly recommended. "

    " Another brain twister from Christie. I had just read Murder on the Orient Express and on the back cover it says, "Have you read "Curtain"? It was my last case. And I took it to mean that it was his prior case and now it turns out he dies! That blows! Well, I am sure I have a ton more Poirot books to read before I finish them all. I thought the "curtain" thing meant it was all an act, especially when he said he came back from Egypt "better" than when he left, I thought it was all staged for the killer's benefit. Wrong! "

    " Generally love Agatha Christie, but this one was definitely not my favorite. The story is a bit bizarre. Still, for most of it (except the ending) a light, fairly enjoyable read. "

    " Really fun, great twists, and nothing less than what you would expect from a mystery master "
