Agatha Christie: Sad Cypress

Sad Cypress
This mystery, I think, was much better than Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? Sad Cypress starts with what you would expect to be the ending: the suspect in the dock, accused of double homicide. As Poirot reluctantly begins his investigation, he finds that everything points to the accused being guilty. But Poirot decides it all fits too neatly. He turns contrarian and sets out to free his woman. So to speak. Christie’s up to her usual misdirection and does it quite well. I’m surprised this isn’t one of her more famous tales. It really is quite good.
