Publisher's Summary

A revolution in the Middle East has a direct and deadly impact upon the summer term at Meadowbank, a picture-perfect girls' school in the English countryside. Prince Ali Yusuf, Hereditary Sheikh of Ramat, whose great liberalizing experiment - hospitals, schools, a Health Service - is coming to chaos, knows that he must prepare for the day of his exile. He asks his pilot and school friend, Bob Rawlinson, to care for a packet of jewels. Rawlinson does so, hiding them among the possessions of his niece, Jennifer Sutcliffe, who is bound for Meadowbank.

Rawlinson is killed before he can reveal the hiding place - or even the fact that he has employed his niece as a smuggler. But someone knows, or suspects, that Jennifer has the jewels. As murder strikes Meadowbank, only Hercule Poirot can restore the peace.

    I was born near Chicago, and moved to Texas 22 years ago. I taught high-school English for probably too many years. Love a good mystery.

    Story
    "Christie at Her Best"
    If you could sum up Cat Among the Pigeons in three words, what would they be?

    Clever, engaging, surprising


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Cat Among the Pigeons?

    The unveiling of the mystery at the end was the best part. It was more difficult to discover the murderer although clues were fairly given.


    Which character – as performed by Hugh Fraser – was your favorite?

    He did a great job on all characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not one particular moment, but the characters' lives held my interest.


    Any additional comments?

    This Christie mystery is definitely worth the money.
