As usual, Agatha Christie creates a magic while writing this mystery novel. In her books, there is always a speculation of characters, which makes one reluctant to leave the book until one finishes it off. Like many of her novels there is a woman, katherine Gray, who gets involved in an adventure. In her subconscious mind, she rather likes to be a part of the adventure. Though a very simple girl from outside, she experiences extraordinary things and actively takes part in helping Poirot solve the mystery, or rather the series of mysteries as is always the case with Christie's mystery novels. Poirot boasts as usual about his little grey cells, but he also gives the impression of a father figure, which mitigates this only vice of his. As the last point, I would mention that whoever loves adventure, is sure to like it. For those, who are great fans of Agatha Christie's novels, if you rate her books in three categories -- best, better and good, this one may be termed as better with some characteristics of Best. Like Christie's most stories, a happy feeling lingers after one completes reading the book.
