Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha ChristieMy rating: Mystery
I've been a fan of Agatha Christie for as long as I can remember, and Poirot has always been my favourite detective. Hercule Poirot's Christmas is in some ways very typical of Christie's writing, featuring a misanthropic victim and a country house full of relatives-with-motive. There are obscure clues that really only make sense after Poirot has explained their relevance, and no shortage of red herrings along the way.
Even for a Poirot novel, however, this one has a particularly intricate plot, with a solution which has always been one of my favourites.
