Page Count/Review Word Count: 191
Miss Buckley is in trouble – first, a heavy picture fell across her bed. It could’ve killed her! Next, a boulder thunders past her on a cliff path. And then her brakes fail on a steep hill near End House.
But all of these ‘accidents‘ might have passed unnoticed, if the would-be murderer hadn’t struck again, missing her head with a bullet by inches. Only this time, the assassin made a mistake – Hercule Poirot was talking to his intended victim at the time, and it’s enough to tempt him out of retirement.
With Peril at End House, we’re back to the Agatha Christie that we know and love – the crime queen, who lost her way a bit with the Tommy and Tuppence books and the occasional romance novel under the pseudonym of Mary Westmacott.
Here, Christie is at her best, covering an intriguing crime with the typical twist, and one that will keep you guessing right until the end. A thoroughly fantastic and enjoyable Agatha Christie epic.
