Recommended for: Any Christie fans who like a little less of Poirot in a book!

An interesting little mystery, more of a book to pass the time on a plane than a serious read. Overall, the plot is just as puzzling as the more well-known Christie classics, but slightly more obvious to the budding armchair detective. The book is narrated from the point-of-view of a young man in the British secret service, and as such has a bit of the typical double-agent mystery in it. Hercule Poirot is as modest as ever, claiming that the entire crime is nothing more than a mental exercise for him. However, I do agree with his maxim of "The more complex a crime is, the more simple it is behind the facade." A good read for crime fans.
