Peril at End House: A Hercule Poirot Mystery | [Agatha Christie]

Peril at End House: A Hercule Poirot Mystery

On holiday on the Cornish Riviera, Hercule Poirot is alarmed to hear pretty Nick Buckley describe her recent "accidental brushes with death". First, on a treacherous Cornish hillside, the brakes on her car failed. Then, on a coastal path, a falling boulder missed her by inches. Later, an oil painting fell and almost crushed her in bed. So when Poirot finds a bullet hole in Nick's sun hat, he decides that this girl needs his help. Can he find the would-be killer before he hits his target?

    "Christie had me beffled again"

    Serves me right for starting to think the Poirot stories were becoming formulaic and predictable. This one honestly had me baffled all the way through the reveal. The only bit I had guessed was my suspicion of the identity of "J". And I suspected the Crofts of something, but I couldn't think what. The rest had me quite fooled. Refreshing. I was quite amused by a reference to The Moonstone in one of their wild theories early on, having enjoyed that mystery novel myself not long before reading this.
    Another wonderful performance by Fraser.

    "Poirot on the Case"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Peril at End House to be better than the print version?

    I greatly enjoyed the book, but it's always fun to listen to a good actor interpret a good story.


    What other book might you compare Peril at End House to and why?

    I also enjoyed the BBC radio full-cast performance of Peril at End House. It was great fun.


    Have you listened to any of Hugh Fraser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Mr. Fraser is consistently good in his performances. He has a wonderful style and is a lot of fun to listen to. But it's a bit odd to hear "Poirot" as interpreted by "Hastings."


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

    Not moved me, but I loved the way in which Poirot took personally how he was constantly baffled by the solution to the crime.
