Summary from goodreads:

The famous case that launched the career of Hercule Poirot. When a wealthy heiress is murdered, Poirot steps out of retirement to find the killer. As the master detective makes his way through the list of suspects, he finds the solution in an elaborately planned scheme almost impossible to believe.

Review:

This is the first book that Christie had published. Since it was so early, I figured i might actually be able to figure out who did it. Yeah…not so much. I was convinced I had it to find out that I was completely wrong.

But, like always, I COULD have figured it out. Poirot didn’t keep something hidden until the end or keep out important information, he just looked and listened to see and hear what I did not. It is all in the details and it makes it so much fun to read.

I can see why this launched this character are her career. She is a brilliant writer and I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. If you ave not yet read a Christie book, but love a mystery, try her first!
