Publisher's Summary

Mrs McGinty died from a brutal blow to the back of her head. Suspicion fell immediately on her shifty lodger, James Bentley, whose clothes revealed traces of the victim's blood and hair. Yet something was amiss: Bentley just didn't look like a murderer.Poirot believed he could save the man from the gallows. What he didn't realise was that his own life was now in great danger.


What the Critics Say

"The plot is perfect and the characters are wonderful." (San Francisco Chronicle)
"The best Poirot since such pre-war classics as Cards on the Table." (New York Times)
"So simple, so economical, so completely baffling. Every clue scrupulously given, with superb sleight of hand." (Sunday Times)

One of her best

Not as well known as 'orient express' or 'death on the Nile', but this book is one of her best with solid back story (where are they now) and excellent characterisations of all the residents at Broadhinney. Coupled with High Fraser's narration this is one of the best Christies I've download.

You can't go wrong with Agatha Christie. Time and again I return to her books (spoken or word) due to the timeless quality and appeal of her work.
