really liked it
bookshelves: mystery

Apparently Christie worked at times on archaeological digs herself, accompanying her husband to various sites. So I like to think that all the really odd people in this book are people she really knew and wanted to put into a book. Maybe she didn't really like her co-diggers.

I did not solve this one before the end. Poirot makes leaps of deduction with clock-like regularity that I'm not sure a human (who is not the author) could really make, but it all sounds very reasonable when he explains it in the next-to-last chapter, as is his wont.
