Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot, #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot, #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot #25) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Hercule Poirot Series, #24) by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie Five Little Pigs (Mengungkit Pembunuhan) by Agatha Christie

It was an open and shut case. All the evidence said Caroline Crale poisoned her philandering husband, a brilliant painter. She was quickly and easily convicted and sentenced to life in prison.

Now, sixteen years later, in a posthumous letter, Mrs Crale has assured her grown daughter that she was innocent. But instead of setting the young woman's mind at ease, the letter only raises disturbing questions. Did Caroline indeed write the truth? And if she didn't kill her husband, who did?

To find out, the Crale’s daughter asks Hercule Poirot to reopen the case. His investigation takes him deep into the different memories and motivations of the five other people who were with the Crales' on a fatal day. With his keen understanding of human psychology, he manages to discover the surprising truth behind the artist's death.

Sarah-Grace (Azrael865) (sarah-grace) | 44 comments I have a copy of this, under the title of "Murder in Retrospect." I did read it a long time ago, while I was still in highschool, and dont remember anything. I'm in for a re-read.

Murder in Retrospect (Hercule Poirot #25) by Agatha Christie

I also have one that Goodreads doesnt have the cover for...it is light blue with an hour glass in the center and posed around the hour glass a wine glass, a butterfly resting on a pistol and paint brushes.

Tonya Mathis | 73 comments Finished it last night. I had forgotten the ending. I'll probably watch the dvd version to see how it compares.
