Publisher's Summary

Carla Lemarchant was a child of five when her mother was accused and convicted of poisoning her father, the famous painter Amyas Crale. After Caroline Crale dies in prison, Carla is sent to live with her uncle and aunt in Canada.

Only on her 21st birthday does Carla learn of her family history when she reads a letter written by Caroline before her death, in which she denies murdering her husband. But if her mother didn't kill Amyas Crale, who did?

Carla needs to know, because she is planning to get married and wishes to start her new life without this terrible shadow hanging over her. Desperate to find out the truth, she consults the best detective money can buy.

With nothing to go on except five suspects who fit strangely into the pattern of a child's nursery rhyme, Hercule Poirot is faced with a formidable challenge to find the real killer....

Great Read

This story really was amazing. I never caught on to who the murder was and the further into the story it got the more I enjoyed it and felt the intensity to it. Great performance and wonderful book.

Good old fashioned Christie

First a caveat, this story is backwards! You need to start with chapter 2 then chapter 1 otherwise you get a confusing story with the conclusion before you get the red herrings! So apart from the above a good story, goes around the houses classic Christie. The BBC versions are always the best, John Moffatt is an excellent Poirot.

Good adaptation

Loved the dramatic nature of this but have to say still prefer David Suchet accent for Poirot.
