4.5 Three Act Tragedy by Agatha Christie
Series: Poirot #11 *Applause.* I feel a bit as if this was Christie’s response to Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Hound of the Baskervilles. As in that book, our detective disappears near the beginning only to reappear halfway through. Instead of Poirot, we get to witness the sleuthing talents of S...

Regardless, it was interesting to see how Mrs. Christie created a story almost in the format of a play. The TV version is excellent but there was a lot of nuances...
