Peril..comes to those who wait....
on 17 May 2017
I'd always overlooked this particular novel in the past, picking up somewhere along the way that it was rather dark, but I enjoyed it thoroughly. It isn't particularly dark at all really but rather humorous and tongue in cheek. We see M. Poirot and Hastings holidaying but murder and mystery are never too far away - much, of course, to the delight of M. Poirot and his indefatigable ego. When the mystery is eventually solved the explanation seems both fantastical and simplistic - but being totally engrossed in the tale the reader, I think, is totally accepting of it. Recommended as a very enjoyable although relatively quick read.
