Brilliant

Inspector Poirot was a delight, quite a quirky individual. The plot took some twists and turns and kept the viewer in suspense until the unexpected end. Agatha Christie is a master mystery writer, and her diverse cast of characters added immense interest and suspense to the story. I loved it!
