Overview

When Lord Edgware Dies a most unnatural death, detective Hercule Poirot must solve a most confounding conundrum: if the obvious killer, the slain peer’s spiteful wife, didn’t do it, who did? A classic from the queen of mystery, Agatha Christie.

When Lord Edgware is found murdered the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to “get rid” of him.

But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? It’s a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.

Another wonderful Agatha Christie detectve story. Nobody else can compare to her in writing abilities! I've read her stories many times, and I still couldn't figure out the ending until it was finally revealed!

Lord Edgward is dead, stabbed in the neck. However, this man will be missed by no one. The police think his wife did it and poirot believes that some one is trying to frame her for murder. So, was he killed by his unloving wife,his daughter who also hated him,his nephew who needed money badly and received a large amount of it by his uncle's death,or by someone else?

It's no suprise that this book is awesome. But I think that it in particluar is so completely characteristic of Poirot. In other books he is occasionally inconsistent, but here everything is perfect. You can really get to know him. Some of the books, also, don't seem to use all of A. C.'s tricks and trademarks and you feel like you missed something, but this, this is exactly right. It has everything, Captain Hastings and all (who I think is endearingly niave.)

Lord Edgware is a cruel man who seems to have a kinky streak in him. His wife is the younger and famous actress Jane Wilkinson, but she left him not long after their marriage and has openly wished for his death so she can remarry. When Edgware obliges, Poirot and Hastings think that Lady Edgware is too lucky and too thrilled.Continuing on with reading A.G. in order of publication. This is one of the more complex plots, with lots of good motives and suspects getting bumped off at a good pace.

Keeps you guessing to the very end!!! Always the sleuth, Mr. Poirot, always on the money with the solution to the crime. I will always love reading Agatha Christie's Miss Jane Marple and Hercule Poirot as I did as a child. Definitely a great page Turner, every one!!!!!
