Dumb Witness

by Agatha Christie


Woman's best friend

 

 

Hercule Poirot receives a letter from a Miss Arundel which leaves him perplexed.

 

The letter is from a woman whose natural reticence has been overwhelmed by fear and concern.

 

She asks for Poirot's help, but help with what?

 

What exactly is the dog's ball incident? And why has it led her to such feelings of fear?

 

Such fear that she must ask Poirot, the great Hercule Poirot, for assistance?

 

But Poirot notices one crucial detail which leads him to believe that he should investigate without further delay.

 

However on arriving at his correspondent's address in the provincial town of Market Basing, Poirot is stunned to learn the news.

 

Miss Arundel's house is up for sale, following her death... from natural causes.

 

This is a very entertaining read which is split into two phases. The initial investigation in Market Basing, which is punctuated by encounters with a set of fascinating locals.

 

And the second phase, after Poirot returns to the Metropolis, when events take a far more sinister turn as it becomes clear that a killer may be about to strike again.

 

Christie disappoints with a lack of attention to detail in some aspects of the plot, but this is more than made up for by the book's delightful characters and entertaining dialogue.

 

   

LITREV Rating - 5 / 5
