Dead Man's Folly: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

Dead Man's Folly: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

Whilst organising a mock murder hunt for the village fete hosted by Sir George and Lady Stubbs, a feeling of dread settles on the famous crime novelist Adriane Oliver. Call it instinct, but it's a feeling she just can't explain...or get away from. In desperation she summons her old friend, Hercule Poirot - and her instincts are soon proved correct when the "pretend" murder victim is discovered playing the scene for real, a rope wrapped tightly around her neck.

Publisher's Summary

Whilst organising a mock murder hunt for the village fete hosted by Sir George and Lady Stubbs, a feeling of dread settles on the famous crime novelist Adriane Oliver. Call it instinct, but it's a feeling she just can't explain...or get away from.

In desperation she summons her old friend, Hercule Poirot - and her instincts are soon proved correct when the "pretend" murder victim is discovered playing the scene for real, a rope wrapped tightly around her neck.

But it's the great detective who first discovers that in murder hunts, whether mock or real, everyone is playing a part.

    I'm open to any book as long as it is true to itself.

    "A great Agatha Christie"

    I have read lots of Agatha Christie novels as they are pretty dependable as a good read. This was one of my favourites. Very enjoyable with some good, unexpected twists. Highly recommended.

    "Christie and Suchet - Jolly Well Done"
    Any additional comments?

    I wouldn't rate this as one of my favorite Poirot adventures but David Suchet brought the characters to life with such flair that I chuckled repeatedly over the variety of personalities he created with Christi's talent. It was a jolly listen.
