Book Description

14 Jun 2011 Hercule Poirot Mysteries

Designed to match the new look Hercule Poirot series.

Read by Hugh Fraser who plays Captain Hastings in the popular TV series.

Three single girls shared the same London flat. The first worked as a secretary; the second was an artist; the third who came to Poirot for help, disappeared convinced she was a murderer.

Now there were rumours of revolvers, flick-knives and blood stains. But, without hard evidence, it would take all Poirot’s tenacity to establish whether the third girl was guilty innocent or insane…

More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

From the Back Cover

Three single girls shared the same London flat. The first worked as a secretary; the second was an artist; the third, who came to Poirot for help, disappeared believing she was a murderer.

Now there were rumours of revolvers, flick-knives and blood stains. But, without hard evidence, it would take all Poirot's tenacity to establish whether the third girl was guilty, innocent or insane.

4.0 out of 5 stars All I Am Saying Is Give This A Chance! 10 April 2007
By C. Knowles VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback
Poor old 'Third Girl'! One of those tag-end Christies that nobody particularly likes, nobody can remember, never makes it onto anybody's 'favourites' list but not bad enough to prop up the table either, so forgettable that nobody can even be bothered to review it on Amazon! Well let me rescue this little book from the oblivion of the unloved and unwanted. I actually think it's pretty good! Certainly for this late stage of Christie's career when she was usually more miss than hit, and it's way better than the 3 titles which directly precede it chronologically. A young woman visits Poirot to voice her fear that she "might" have committed a murder....and we're off into a, for the most part, cleverly plotted and intriguing case, even if there are a few details which don't bear too close an inspection. Interesting also is how plain Christie makes her views on 60s youth. This hardly bears comparison with many of the great titles of the 30s and 40s, but taken on its own merits it provides a very decent read. As long as you don't come to this expecting another 'Death On The Nile', I bet you'll be pleasantly surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly enjoyable 9 Aug 2008
Format:Paperback
I'm not convinced that I much approve of a Hercule Poirot prancing round swinging London in the 60s. But once I'd got over that, I enjoyed this lots. Typically twisty turny plot with a breathtakingly unlikely ending. Good fun.

3.0 out of 5 stars Average Christie 3 Oct 2001
Format:Paperback
Not one of Christie's best books, but nor is it one of my least favourite.
It features Poirot and Ariadne Oliver. I think it would have been better as just a Poirot on his own, or perhaps with Hastings helping him. Oliver never seems real to me - perhaps created as a humourous character but I fail to see the charm or fun in her at all.
The plot is a fairly good one, and it reminds me in its structure of another, better, Christie book, but to say which would give you a clue to the solution! There are plenty of clues and red herrings of course, but I reckon some people will be able to work this one out.
I think I found it a bit messy, what with the story and action unfolding in various different places at pretty much the same time. Her village settings often work better because the single location focuses the mind on what is happening.
An easy read, interesting while it lasts, but not one of her more memorable stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Family Murder??? 5 Jan 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Enjoyable book, but would have been better if Hastings had assisted Poirot instead of Ariadne Oliver hence the four stars.

This is about a young girl who thinks she's committed murder, but without actually remembering having done so. Set in the sixties this novel mentions the typical beatniks etc that existed in those times and also mentions how times have changed re girls part in society compared to a generation or two before.

Easy read and a story which is geared round a family and its secrets. I'll say no more other than read it and find out for yourself.

Would recommend.
