Read this book this week and thought it was not entertaining, too much like a bowl of spaghetti all tangled. Nothing like Agatha Christie's Poirot. What do others think?

Pat I disliked the constant switching of points of view - Poirot was not the Poirot we know from Christie's works, and the inspector was totally unsuited for police work.

Christine Yes, you have to work hard when reading this book but I enjoyed that element. It was a mental challenge. I found Hannah's version of Poirot to be quite accurate.
Vanessa Knutsen Bowl of Spaghetti is a good analogy for the tangled plot.

and...the ending Denoument was not sharp, clear, the REAL Agatha Christie Denouments are...'s way too long...

What was the point of Catchpool anyway???
