BOOK REVIEW: Peril At End House

Refreshingly Original .........


This is my third read pen down by Agatha Christie and as always Queen of Crimes played her magic with intriguing Mystery and a mind-blowing sequence to solve it by Hercule Poirot .

FRONT COVER ~

Front Cover which is truly catch enough to let anyone pick the book in one go . Cover is enveloped with dark blue colour over which on top is written is the Name of the author " agatha christie "in calligraphical manner and Beneath it lies is the Name of the Book . Interestingly the name of the book is embedded over the artistic view of the edge of a  house showcasing 3 windows and a door , out of which one of window gives view of a shadow .


BACK COVER ~
Back Cover holds the epitome of the story on left side and on other side is the list of books written by the author .

While on holiday in Cornwall, Hercule Poirot falls, turns his ankle and stumbles into pretty Nick Buckley, accident-prone heiress of a local estate and the survivor of several near-fatal mishaps. Poirot suspects more when strange connections surface between distant relatives, an absent pilot and a local gang of friends.

Coming to writing section As always , hooking enough to read it with fixed gaze and flipping the pages ! Very Clever and emotional crime story with Hercule Poirot .This time our hero Hercule Poiroit  is on holiday to St. Loo , after announcing his retirement , staying in Majestic Hotel with his friend Captain Hastings who is narrating the plot . On the terrace of their noble hotel they encounter a charming young Miss Buckley. Three attempts were made on her life and fourth was made in presence of Hercule Poiroit . As the name of the book suggest , Prior attempts were made on Nick's life at her home and is portrayed as a Hazardous place . Hercule decided to investigate the case and as always using his grey cells & number of theories  Hercule and Hastings solve another mystery .

Must Read & Truly Refreshed Mystery :)
