Peril at End House follows detective Hercule's Poirot's encounters with Mademoiselle Nick Buckly, who feels as though someone is attempting to kill her. Agatha Christie takes you through this murder mystery, a Cluedo-esque whodunit, that will keep you on your toes.
For a crime novel, it was a very pleasant read. I think the way Agatha Christie is able to write crime in a way that is relaxing for the reader is quite unique, and one of the reasons behind my growing love for her. Hercule Poirot's wit and humour adds another layer of lightness to the short novel, which made it even more entertaining.
Peril at End House is an excellent afternoon novel, for someone who wants to immerse him or herself in a book they can finish in one sitting, with a cup of tea or a glass of red. Read it!
