This Agatha Christie mystery is branded as a Hercule Poirot novel but that's a little misleading. Poirot doesn't make an appearance until almost halfway through, and once he does, he's in more of a supporting role. Agent Colin Lamb is the narrator here and he is aided chiefly by Inspector Hardcastle, and somewhat lesser by Poirot himself.

The plot is well thought out and intriguing, and I expect that from Agatha Christie, but the lack of appearances by Poirot made it less enjoyable. Listening to Poirot figure out the crime and ultimately walking us through his thought process just barely made the whole effort worth it for me.
