I got cocky and too sure of my first guess. The finale was perfect. Perfectly surprising that is. :) ( )

Elinor Carlisle is on trial for the murder of Mary Gerrard. There doesn't seem to be anybody else with a motive or who could have done it. But the local doctor asks Poirot for help proving her innocence.

I must admit I fell for the red herring and thought I'd done well to guess who it was early on. But of course I was wrong and Poirot's little grey cells were more than a match for mine. ( )

This is my second Agatha Christie novel, but my first one featuring Poirot. My first one was with Miss Marple and I found it an ok mystery with nice cozy elements to it. But this one was surprisingly good as I was expecting more or less the same.

The characters here had more personality and more depth to them, the plot itself was much more involved and definitely had more tension. I enjoyed the courtroom scenes especially (haha you can definitely picture the audience with audible gasps during these scenes)

My guess was completely wrong in this mystery, but the little twist and how it all came together was well thought out. You didn't really know what Poirot was thinking as he was putting the pieces together and you can feel just as exasperated as the characters felt when Poirot tries to explain his methods of thinking (he likes to draw out his conclusions)

My next Christie book for the ReadChristie2021 challenge will feature Poirot again, so I hope I will enjoy it as much as this one! ( )

Christie doesn't have a lot of courtroom dramas in her repertoire and I was surprised to see lawyers in this one! It didn't feel as compelling as her other books: Poirot is invited later in the tale and is slow to uncover clues readers already know about. The ending rests on a information that the reader had no way of knowing. While this is not a new technique, it seemed particularly poorly used in this case.
The book still had its usual Christie charm but not the cleverness. This would explain why it's not as well-known as others. ( )

Elinor is accused of murdering her love rival. Poirot to the rescue. I thought I had sussed this early on and was enjoying the red herrings. And I was completely wrong. Christie can still fox me. Great.

Then listened to radio play in 2021, and sometimes it pays to have a dreadful memory. Again, I thought I had cleverly sussed it, and again I was foxed. Begins with Elinor’s court case, then the events to the case are revealed. A wealthy woman is dying, hasn’t made a will but asks Elinor to financially take care of her young companion.

The solution to the puzzle needed some suspension of belief! ( )

Come away, come away, death,
And in sad cypress let me be laid;
Fly away, fly away, breath;
I am slain by a fair cruel maid.
My shroud of white, stuck all with yew,
O prepare it!
My part of death, no one so true
Did share it.

—Shakespeare
