|Peril At End House|
Agatha Christie is known as the 'Queen of Crime' and in this book too, she lives up to that billing.
Hercule Poirot, the ace detective and his associate, Captain Hastings are enjoying a holiday in the town of St. Loo in the Cornish Coast of England.
Suddenly, one day, a lady, Mademoiselle Nick comes to them and tells Poirot about some life threatening situations she had met with recently.
The brakes of her car mysteriously failed while driving on a cliff. Then, on a coastal path, she just escaped being hit by a falling boulder. In the third incident, a painting in her house fell and almost crushed her head. All these incidents clearly showed that someone wanted to murder Mademoiselle Nick.
Poirot agrees to investigate the case and looks at it through various angles.
However, the investigation is a bit baffling, to even a seasoned detective like Poirot. Ultimately when the solution is found, it is totally impossible to believe. The ending will be a genuine surprise and you are bound to be left scratching your heads.
I would definitely recommend this book to the detective lovers and for those who do not, I would say that this book is bound to have a lasting impression on your minds and you'll never regret reading it.
So, Go For It! And Happy Reading!
