‘Poirot’s return to the happy hunting grounds of detective fiction is something of an event… The thumbnail sketches of the characters are as good as ever and in spite of the over-elaborate nature of the puzzle there is plenty of entertainment.’ Times Literary Supplement

‘The Christie fan of longest standing, who thinks he knows every one of her tricks, will still be surprised by some of the twists here.’ New York Times

From the Back Cover:

Hercule Poirot doesn't need all his detective skills to realise something is troubling his secretary, Miss Lemon – she has made three mistakes in a simple letter. It seems an outbreak of kleptomania at the student hostel in which her sister works is distracting his usually efficient assistant.

Deciding that desperate times call for desperate measures, the great detective agrees to investigate.

Unknown to Poirot, however, desperation is a motive he shares with a killer…

"The characters are as good as ever and there is plenty of entertainment."
