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.

I've really come to like the character of Ariadne Oliver, the mystery writer, who I kind of imagine as a mix of Agatha Christie and Miss Marple. And an older Poirot is good too.....but the actual mystery is too convoluted for it's own good. Not a complex mystery, but a muddled tale that is hard to follow and unsatisfying.
