“The Empress of the crime novel”
'A swift course of unflagging suspense leads to complete surprise.'
New York Times
From the Back Cover
The dentist was found with a blackened hole below his right temple. A pistol lay on the floor near his outflung right hand. Later, one of his patients was found dead from a lethal dose of local anaesthetic. A clear case of murder and suicide. But why would a dentist commit a crime in the middle of a busy day of appointments?
A shoe buckle holds the key to the mystery. Now – in the words of the rhyme – can Poirot pick up the sticks and lay them straight?

For those who like to solve these cases themselves, there is a lot to go on with the clues clearly and mostly fairly marked. The one problem is that the solution begs a few more questions than it should; all the same one of my favourites.
Lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing right through to the end with a brilliant plot line. Would recommend.
It is about a dentist that apparently commits suicide on a very busy day, and later on a patient of his is found dead, he was overdosed with a gum injection. The police decide that Mr Morley ( the dentist ), must have accidentally overdosed Mr Amberiotis ( the second murder victim ), realised what he had done and then killed himself, but the Hercule Poirot disagrees with this theory and sets out to disprove it. It is only when another murder occurs, that Poirot was proven correct.
This book contains such clues as, the attempt to assasinate Allistair Blunt, a missing lady with a buckle on her shoe, and the attempt to conceale the identity of the third murder victim.
This isn't a book that first time Christie readers should read, but I do think that if you have read a few of her books, that you should read this, but don't expect a masterpiece. If you are new to Christie, I reccomend, And Then There Were None, Crooked House, Murder On The Orient Express, Death On The Nile, The ABC Murders, and A Pocket Full Of Rye.
