Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stood serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence was damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity, and the means to administer the fatal poison.

Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, only one man still presumed Elinor was innocent until proven guilty. Hercule Poirot was all that stood between Elinor and the gallows.

    " This book had a deeper, more psychological aspect than most of Christie's works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Barry | 5/7/2011

    " A little more emotionally involved than the average Christie. I found it hard to get over my disappointment at the most appealing character getting bumped off. Good but not her best. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 3/28/2011

    " Vintage Agatha Christie...though the ending wasn't a complete surprise, there were a few elements I didn't expect. Every now and then I just need a Hercule Poirot fix.
    "

    " Not my favorite of the series. Poirot hired to prove a woman innocent of a murder. Didn't like the main character and the story didn't hold me. "

    " One of my favorite Agatha Christie's so far! "
