Hercule Poirot's Christmas.


Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha Christie.

'And families now, families who have been seperated throughout the year, assemble once more together. Now under these conditions, my friend, you musy admit that there will occur a great amount of strain.'

What better time than Christmas to gather the family together. That was Simeon Lee's plan. His sons and their wives all arrived as expected . There were a couple of uninvited guests too; both from abroad, but Simeon welcomed them all the same.
Gorston Hall was a large house, many rooms and passageways were available for criminal intent and revenge on everyone's mind.


'That'a another characteristic of the Lees--- they don't forget! They'll avenge a wrong if they have to wait years to do it.'
A quick read for Christmas week. This was a good mystery kept me guessing right to the end. Highly recommended.

I am hoping to read my first Poirot book sometime in 2010. Perhaps I should plan to read this one next holiday season.
