Read from January 26 to February 02, 2012 , read count: 1

Only on book 3 of the Agatha Christie (read them all in publication order) challenge -- I enjoyed this dip into the 1920's. While I did read that one reviewer called it a historical mystery, I am not so sure...there is a lot of talk about CSI (not specifically, but generally) -- fingerprints, and hairs, and one of the detectives (one Poirot calls the foxhound) crawling around on the ground looking for clues.

Poirot is described much more in than in the first book - The Mysterious Affair at Styles - and he is a bit OCD. I don't remember that so much from reading when I was a kid, but I may have not known what to look for. I often found myself thinking that Poirot and Monk (from the TV show) would have understood each other.

Another winner from the Queen of Crime.
