Very good!

I was put off initially as there were so many characters introduced in the beginning and I wasn't keeping them straight. That bothered me. Alas, I think perhaps I was more tired than I should have been to start a murder mystery. After a good sleep, I began anew and got with the program fairly well.

Happy to say I had this one pegged fairly early on. Yes, there were details that I hadn't straightened out, but saw the murderer and the general concept of the motive. Even understood the red herring. The final death was troublesome for me, buy alas, not for M. Poirot.

Oh, how clever the man is. Got to hand it to him.

I like the set-up of this murder. I think it is well-written. Again, a lot of characters to kep track of. They were not developed until the third act, which keeps the reader on edge.
