Publisher's Summary

The house guests at Styles seemed perfectly pleasant to Captain Hastings. There was his own daughter, Judith; an inoffensive ornithologist called Norton; dashing Mr Allerton; brittle Miss Cole; Doctor Franklin and his fragile wife, Barbara; Nurse Craven; Colonel Luttrell and his charming wife, Daisy; and the charismatic Boyd-Carrington. So Hastings was shocked to learn from Hercule Poirot's declaration that one of them was a five-times murderer. True, the aging detective was crippled with arthritis, but had his deductive instincts finally deserted him?


What the Critics Say

The end of Poirot

A poignant final case for Poirot aided by his faithful Hastings in which they re-investigate supposedly solved murders/deaths. In true Agatha Christie style it's intricately plotted and enjoyable to listen to owing much to being wonderfully well-read by Hugh Fraser (Hastings of the TV series).

This is a fantastic book. The best thought out story, the best characters, the best twists, and an end you mustn't miss out on.

How clever Agatha was. And to finish like

Buy it, you will not be disappointed.

A clever piece of writing. Not too many characters so it is easy to follow. A contained story as it all happens in one place more or less.

I absolutely loved it. You will too.
