Thirteen guests arrived at dinner at the actor's house. It was to be a particularly unlucky evening for the mild-mannered Reverend Stephen Babbington, who choked on his cocktail, went into convulsions and died.But when his martini glass was sent for chemical analysis, there was no trace of poison - just as Poirot had predicted. Even more troubling for the great detective, there was absolutely no motive...To mark the 80th anniversary of Hercule Poirot's first appearance, and to celebrate his renewed fortunes as a primetime television star, this title in a collection of facsimile first editions is the perfect way to experience Agatha Christie. Reproducing the original typesetting and format of the first edition from the Christie family's own archive, this book sports the original cover which has been painstakingly restored to its original glory.

For a Poirot book, he's barely in it which isn't ideal but it would be bearable if the other characters were at least like-able. Unfortunately you don't get to know the other characters very well and the story does not particularly stand out among the other Poirot novels. Parts of the plot were too similar to 'Lord Edgeware Dies' in my opinion.

Far too little Poirot; far too much the discreet gentleman Satterthwaite. "Egg" is just too silly a toddler's nickname to live on to adulthood.

Once again Hercule Poirot's grey matter rises above the rest. Lots of possibilities and characters to love and/or despise.

Well worth reading.
