A few weeks after marrying an attractive widow, Gordon Cloade is tragically killed by a bomb blast in the London blitz. Overnight, the former Mrs. Underhay finds herself in sole possession of the Cloade family fortune.

Shortly afterward, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man's sister-in-law who claims she has been warned by spirits that Mrs. Underhay's first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the woman's true motive for approaching him.

    " It is not a VERY good book. A mystery. Like many others. The same structure. But I like mysteries, so, a good entertainment. "

    " This was a pretty good novel. It had me guessing until the end. As usually I love the characters and obviously the one and only Hercule Poirot! "

    " Another Agatha Christie's book!I shall say I like it, but no, not too much..I dont know, I just dont feel satisfied..perhaps, I am hard to satisfy, but I dont think so~ "

    " 7/10 Another fun mystery from Agatha Christie. Suspicions and revelations of truth are well-developed. Included two romances which were important to the story but seemed unrealistic to my thinking. "

    " "When you caught hold of me by the throat and said if I wasn't for you, no one should have me - well - I knew then that I was your woman!"

    Be still my wife-beating heart. "

    " You know, it was going great until Lynn realizes she's in love with the guy who tried to murder her while he's in the process of strangling her. That put the super-racist old lady in the shade. "

    " Also known as Taken at the Flood "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirsti | 6/23/2010

    " This was a fun reread. Minus one star for the "it wasn't until you were trying to strangle me that I realized that I love you and I'm your woman 4-eva" denouement. "
