Clever to end the series at Styles where Poirot started so many years previously
on 2 July 2017
This is a review of the book.
It is folly to try to compare a book to a tv series as some do. TV producers take great liberties when filming a book.
This is of course Poirot's last case.
I think it a clever twist to end the siries at the place it started , Styles House.
Featuring Captain Hastings, this tale is more about Hastings than Poirot I think.
The plot is contrived but so are most detective/mystery novels.
It is always difficult for an author to conclude a series, many fail but I think in this case Agatha Christie just about pulled it off.
