Three Act Tragedy (by Agatha Christie)

I was getting on a roll with Agatha Christie's novels. A good thing that one of my sons had been collecting them for a while when I decided to start reading her books, at last.

'Three Act Tragedy' begins when an actor throws a dinner party.. and one of the guests drops dead. An accident is assumed, until a similar event occurs at another dinner party some months later.

Hercule Poirot gets involved, and solves the mystery in his inimitable fashion. Clever plotting and an almost believable ending with a little humour thrown in. Enjoyable.
