The novel opens as a theatre programme, with this telling credit: 'Illumination by HERCULE POIROT.' Light must be shed, indeed, on the fateful dinner party staged by the famous actor Sir Charles Cartwright for thirteen guests. It will be a particularly unlucky evening for the mild-mannered Reverend Stephen Babbington, whose martini glass, sent for chemical analysis after he chokes on its contents and dies, reveals no trace of poison. Just as there is no apparent motive for his murder. The first scene in a succession of carefully staged killings, but who is the director?

The New York Times: 'Makes for uncommonly good reading.'

Far too little Poirot; far too much the discreet gentleman Satterthwaite. "Egg" is just too silly a toddler's nickname to live on to adulthood.

Once again Hercule Poirot's grey matter rises above the rest. Lots of possibilities and characters to love and/or despise.

Well worth reading.

Great book with a great ending like all Agatha Christie books

Agatha Christie delivers another intruging mystery. This time, I actually managed to guess the murderer (I guess reading so many Hercule Poirot books is finally paying off), but had no idea why or how, so the ending was still a surprise.
