In Hercule Poirot's Christmas, the holidays are anything but merry when a family reunion is marred by murder--and the notoriously fastidious investigator is quickly on the case.

Christmas Eve, and the Lee family's reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture and a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed.

When Hercule Poirot offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man. . . .

"Hercule Poirot's Christmas" is a fairly interesting mystery with some clever twists and a good plot. However, Poirot lacks the humour and great lines that he had in prior stories, and the story ends too suddenly. Still, the reveal of the killer was surprising and the book is overall decent.

Another brilliant whodunnit from the queen of murder mysteries. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anybody who is looking for a relatively quick read.

Every second or third year I re-read this Christmas mystery and always enjoy the twisted plot.

Great mystery! I never guessed who the murderer was!

I've read quite a few Agatha Christie's, and I find that sometimes they can be very slow, particularly at the beginning. This one, however, was interesting right from the very first chapter, and kept me interested until the very last chapter! I couldn't put it down.
