9780007119356: Appointment with Death (Poirot)

A repugnant Amercian widow is killed during a trip to Petra…

Among the towering red cliffs of Petra, like some monstrous swollen Buddha, sat the corpse of Mrs Boynton. A tiny puncture mark on her wrist was the only sign of the fatal injection that had killed her.

With only 24 hours available to solve the mystery, Hercule Poirot recalled a chance remark he’d overheard back in Jerusalem: ‘You see, don’t you, that she’s got to be killed?’ Mrs Boynton was, indeed, the most detestable woman he’d ever met…

Review:

“Twice as brilliant as Death on the Nile, which was entirely brilliant”
Observer

Book Description:

A tyrannical old martinet, a mental sadist and the incarnation of evil. These were only three of the character descriptions levelled at Mrs Boynton, the matriarch who kept her family totally dependent on her. But did she really deserve to die on the excursion to beautiful Petra? Hercule Poirot is on a visit to the Middle East when he hears about the murder. He feels compelled to investigate – despite the family’s request not to do so. Do they have something to hide and, if so, can they keep it hidden from this master sleuth?
