The Leonides are one big happy family living in a sprawling, ramshackle mansion. That is until the head of the household, Aristide, is murdered with a fatal barbiturate injection.
Suspicion naturally falls on the old man's young widow, 50 years his junior. But the murderer has reckoned without the tenacity of Charles Hayward, fiancé of the late millionaire's granddaughter.

I loved this book! I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone, especially those who enjoy Christie. While this wasn't the typical Poirot story from Christie, I found it just as good as any of her others. She had me completely confounded as to "whodunit", right up to the end.
