Publisher's Summary

The dentist was found with a blackened hole below his right temple. A pistol lay on the floor near his out flung right hand. Later, one of his patients was found dead from a lethal dose of local anaesthetic. A clear case of murder and suicide. But why would a dentist commit a crime in the middle of a busy day of appointments?
A shoe buckle holds the key to the mystery. Now - in the words of the rhyme - can Poirot pick up the sticks and lay them straight?
This title was previously published as The Patriotic Murders and An Overdose of Death.

Love my Christie!

Of Course I adore Hugh Frazier's reading. My discovery of lesser famous Christie stories through Audible is like finding special gems.

Does Agatha ever disappoint?

My listening habits have fallen into a pattern - an intense fantasy novel then an Agatha Christie to take a break. The reason: her novels are both charming and easy to read.
Like all of her novels this one keeps you guessing, I solved part of this one but couldn't connect the dots as well as our Poirot.

This one like 'And then there were none' follows the pattern of a poem. This one being 'one, two buckle my shoe.' Its little details like these that have made me fall in love with the author.

If you are not familiar with Christie this would be a good novel to start. Her books are not graphic or violent like many modern mysteries/thrillers, but have intricate plots and characters that keep you intrigued.For this reason I'd recommend this one.
