Three Act Tragedy [#books #review]

by Agatha Christie

Poirot
Murder on the Orient Express
Death In The Clouds


In all the world there is nothing so curious and so interesting and so beautiful as truth...
Hercule Poirot
(Page 164)

Maybe this is not one of the masterpieces of the Queen of Crime, but I found this book a very entertaining reading, and in a small way it doesn't lack a touch of genius. Memorable then the final sentence, unfortunately super spoiler (it's in the quote section, anyway), but the thing I remembered best from my first reading, and which highlights the character of my beloved Poirot in the best possible way!

Quotes

Mr Satterthwaite sat on the terrace of 'Crow's Nest' and watched his host, Sir Charles Cartwright, climbing up the pat-h from the sea.
