Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“The reader will not be disappointed when the distinguished Belgian on psychological grounds declines to suspect the arrested husband and…lands his fish to the surprise of everyone.” Times Literary Supplement (London)
“Nominally Poirot has retired, but retirement means no more to him than it does to a prima donna. Let a good murder mystery come within his ken, and he just can’t be kept out of it.” New York Times Book Review
“The international setting makes for a good varied read.” Robert Barnard, English crime writer and critic
“It is always a delight to meet Hercule Poirot again. He is one of the few detectives with real charm.” Dorothy L. Sayers, mystery author, praise for the author
