Vacationing in St. Loo, Hercule Poirot meets a beautiful young woman named Nick Buckley, who tells him about three accidents she's had in the past few days, none of which sound much like accidents to the detective. During a chat, Nick complains of a bothersome wasp. After she leaves, Poirot finds a bullet on the ground and a bullet hole in the hat Nick had been wearing and left behind. He offers her his protection and help and she accepts. Another attempt on her life results in the death of another person, and Poirot spirits Nick away for safekeeping. When even this doesn't stop Nick's would-be killer - and it becomes clear that several friends could benefit greatly from her death - Poirot stages an unusual se ance. Reader Hugh Fraser finds all the mystery and drama in this colorful whodunit first published as a book in 1932."

Peril at End House is a worthy entry in Christie's Hercule Poirot portfolio. The story contains plenty of intrigue, deception and danger to satisfy any mystery lover.

At the start Poirot is retired and intends to stay that way. His endearing conceit lets slip that England will no longer have its finest detective on hand to solve crimes, but the time has come to step aside for a younger generation to assume the responsibility. Naturally, a murder eventually finds Poirot and his sense of duty pulls him back into the fold. No doubt his innate curiosity had something to do with it too.

I appreciate the charm of Poirot being slightly off his game in this book as he is occasionally caught unaware by events. Seeing the famed detective flustered from time to time is a welcomed departure.
