Review Text

  • By Acute Observer on October 14, 2015

    CurtainThis was the last Hercule Poirot novel, the Belgian detective who sought refuge in England during the Great War and worked as a consulting detective ("private enquiry agent") after his retirement. Poirot's first murder case was at Styles Court. It was a classic English murder mystery where numerous individuals gathered at a country estate and murder was committed. [Does this scenario tell something about the psychology of those times?] Styles Court is now a retirement home for the lower middle class. Those who are wealthy can find a better place, those who are poor can't afford it. Poirot has taken residence there and invited Hastings to join him. We learn Poirot believes that a murder will take place and the solution will be the last act for a seriously ill Poirot (congestive heart failure). The conversations introduce the people who are staying there.Does Hastings understand what is really going on? Are there little hints given about the clue to the suspected murderer? If a murderer does not have a motive how can he or she be suspected? Does character and psychology play a part in creating a murderer? Or is this Agatha Christie's personal bias? The wife of a scientist is found dead. Is it murder or suicide? Could it be some sort of mistake? Then a resident is found dead of a gunshot to the forehead in a locked room? Suicide, of course. Then Poirot does what all those who are born must do. What about his medicine? Hastings is puzzled over the inexplicable last words of Poirot.Months after Poirot's death Hastings receives a last letter from Poirot (held back by his lawyers) that explained the mysteries. There is shocking news that seems unbelievable. It explained the behavior that Hastings noticed but didn't understand. Was Christie mocking her past work and the conventions of mystery novels? Does the ending seem forced as a way to tie up loose ends?
