A woman who fears the Lord, she shall be praised.
Give her the product of her hands,
And let her works praise her in the gates." (Proverbs 31:30b-31, NASV)

Five Little Pigs by Agatha Christie

Five Little PigsFive Little Pigs by Agatha Christie
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Just when I thought I was clever enough to know "who dun it," Dame Christie fools me again! Five Little Pigs takes Hercule Poirot to the scene of a murder commited 16 years earlier - a crime that was tried, and the suspect found guilty. Poirot, in his typical, gutsy way, visits the six prime players to unearth the truth - a truth hidden deep in half-truths and covered by the fog of years. Christie's ability to give each character a distinctive voice, as seen in each players' narratives, is spot on. And the dynamic between Mr. and Mrs. Crale - the tumultuous love they share - is brilliantly woven through the recollections of the characters.
Highly recommended.
