The first of a new-look series of Hercule Poirot books for the 21st century

It’s been hushed up very nicely, hasn’t it? But he was murdered, wasn’t he?’

There are certain things that are best left unsaid. Though tragedy had touched the life of the wealthy Richard Abernethie, his sudden death seemed pretty unremarkable for a man of his age. So why would his sister wait until his funeral to say he had been murdered?

When she is savagely killed with a hatchet the next day, her extraordinary remark suddenly takes on a chilling significance. In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery
‘Keeps us guessing – and guessing wrongly – to the very last page.’ Liverpool Post

‘Experienced as I am, the solution took me completely by surprise.’ Frances Iles, Sunday Times

Needless to say that this past-master of detection handles it in a fresh and original way. The little Belgian’s solution is both surprising and – after his briliiant exposition at the end – satisfying.’ Daily Telegraph

‘A beautiful precision-tooled job. False clues are laid with effortless skill up to the final revelation. Poirot distinguishes the book by his presence.’ Julian Symons, Manchester Evening News

‘Never has Mrs Christie exerted her incomparable power of deception with more subtlety or to better effect. Superb book.’ Ralph Partridge, New Statesman

‘Poirot at his best. Need I say more?’ Nancy Spain, Daily Express
