Hastings narrates another solid Hercule Poirot outing in Peril at End House by Agatha Christie. This time, instead of trying to solve a murder, Poirot is trying to prevent the murder of a young heiress after a series of attempts on her life. Needless to say, a wide variety of quirky suspects complicates his task. The ongoing sense of danger to our heroine ratchets up the sense of danger, and Christie does a good job of hiding the ultimate villain until the very end.
Summary: A peril-ous stay at End House, indeed. Perhaps not an all-time great Poirot, but it's still a good, solid entry in the series and a fun read.
