** spoiler alert ** Wow. Though I must say reading all these hints about its being controversial and superbly clever did help me figure out who the murderer was - admittedly quite late, at the beginning of the chapter where the revelation is made. When Poirot said it must have been someone who had been there that night, and did NOT say "someone from the family," I immediately thought it was the narrator. I would never have dreamt it could have been him (at least not until Poirot mentioned that the murder must have had something spacious to hide the voice recorder in) if I hadn't read about this book being so special. So my rule from now on - no info of any sort prior to starting a detective novel. I was still shocked though. Amazingly clever book.
