My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A lovely young woman in danger draws Poirot out of retirement to untangle the mystery of who might be trying to do her harm. It is a twisty mystery full of misdirection and funny little outbursts from the world's greatest detective (self-described). Hastings is along for the ride which always improves a Poirot story in my opinion.
“You have a tendency, Hastings, to prefer the least likely. That, no doubt, is from reading too many detective stories.” ― Agatha Christie,This title counts toward the What's in a Name Challenge as a book with a building in the title.
