All the things that make life worth living. A good example of life and all things good and the results of jealously.

I just could not put this one down. Poirot has done it again. I am American-English and I love these British stories I live in the west and like to read them as historic events but the Agatha Christe with Poirot are pure fun and enjoyable.

Of the 82 detective novels written by Dame Agatha Christie, I have tracked down and read 79 of them. Each were unique and intriguing. Her short stories are just as wonderful. This one didn't disappoint and left me guessing until the end. I've read many of the great detective writers and in the case of about 50% of them, I've figured it out before the Big Reveal. Not so, with Dame Agatha! In fact, never could I guess. This one was no different.
Well worth reading!

Hercule Poirot becomes interested in a case of a murdered man stuffed into a spanish chest. While it looks like a close case, Poirot investigates further as he believes the police have the wrong man in custody.

This short mystery seemed pretty grisly. Imagine a dead body stuffed in a chest, with blood staining the rug below. Considering how all of the previous short stories by Agatha Christie that I've read have been a mystery without a corpse, this was a interestingly different mystery. I was completely perplexed by the mystery and couldn't figure out the killer before Poirot.

Poirot feels quite nostalgic in this mystery. He calls on his secretary to help him and seems to be missing "Hasting's ineptitude". It was a different side of Poirot that I haven't seen before and it made him more personable.

The Mystery of the Spanish Chest was another intriguing mystery from Agatha Christie, and has only reinforced in my mind that she's my favorite author. Another flawless, intriguing mystery.

As always, enjoyed Hercules Poirot and his reasoning. Easy to read and interesting twist. Good story though I miss Hastings.

I have been reading Agatha Christie for many years and as usual this Hercule Poirot short story lives up to my expectations of her wit and writing ingenuity. Enjoy.
