Publisher's Summary

Three young women share a London flat. The first is a coolly efficient secretary. The second is an artist. The third interrupts Hercule Poirot's breakfast, confessing that she is a murderer - and then promptly disappears.
Slowly, Poirot learns of the rumors surrounding the mysterious third girl, her family, and her disappearance. Yet hard evidence is needed before the great detective can pronounce her guilty, innocent, or insane.

Did she...or didn't she...that IS the question!

Who is the nefarious soul in this Christie tale? Could it be the young woman who confesses to Poirot that she has murdered someone (and exactly WHO has she murdered)? That would be entirely too simple and would not require the use of Poirot's "little gray cells"! Perhaps it was the young artist who pursues a relationship with this woman; maybe one of her flatmates - one of whom works for her rich (and almost blind) uncle. As usual, the cast of characters (and potential culprits) is large and leave one with any number of possible solutions as to the identity of the murderer. Hugh Fraser's narration is also "spot on". The inclusion of Ariadne Oliver, and Poirot's exasperation with her, is always a quirky, enjoyable part of a Poirot storyline as well.

Loved this book

I had watched this first so even though I knew what would happen it did not make any difference the book was much better. This book felt more complicated than normal but I enjoyed the change.
