Shortly afterwards, Hercule Poirot receives a visit from the dead man's sister-in-law, who claims she has been warned by "spirits" that Mrs Underhay's first husband is still alive. Poirot has his suspicions when he is asked to find a missing person guided only by the spirit world. Yet what mystifies Poirot most is the woman's true motive for approaching him.

"Told briskly, vivaciously, and with ever-fertile imagination." (Manchester Evening News)
"One of the best...her gift for blending the cosy with the macabre has seldom been more in evidence than it is here." (Tatler)
If you like Christie generally then you'll enjoy this. It doesn't quite have you on the edge of your seat but Hercule is as charming as ever and the plot is not too taxing. Quite a twist at the end, worth the wait.
The fact I can get it right away with the new version is better to be the first half of the day before I get a follow back on my way home from work to be the first half of the year of high quality of life
