    " I read some reviews saying this wasn't one of Christie's best, but I still enjoyed it very much. Quite a glamorous mystery and Poirot on good form. "

    " I liked the idea of the female impersonator in this book, and I loved the character of Kathryn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 John | 5/23/2011

    " Good read, but not quite up to the standards of most of Agatha Christie's works. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly | 5/23/2011

    " I didn't like this Christie book as much as some of the others I've read, but it is still a good, worthwhile read. The characters are all well-developed, and there's even some romance. "

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

    " I love Hercule Poirot! It has been a while since I read an Agatha Christie, but this one seemed different to me than the last ones. In this one you have a little more time to get to know and love the characters. Oh but don't worry, there was a MAJOR twist! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Flynt | 5/6/2011

    " I like Miss Marple better. Dame Agatha's Hercule Poirot comes across as cartoonish. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Snail in Danger (Sid) | 4/19/2011

    " I'm not hugely fond of Christie, but I do think this is one of her better efforts. "

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

    " Very fun! I never want to say much about why I like an Agatha Christie, because I don't want to give it away, but I definitely enjoyed this one. One aspect of the ending I would have done differently, but that's more of a sentimental thing than a good-mystery-story thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Daga | 4/10/2011

    " As a book which follows up The big four is it back to good AC. As a stand-alone book it's a good, nicely written and well conducted crime novel, however it lacks a bit of pace and ... passion. Nevertheless worth reading, specially if one is a big fan of AC! "

    " It had all the elements to be a good mystery, but somehow it falls short. Not up to the usual standards. "
