Missing first chapter
The entire first chapter is missing.
Chistie has always been one of my favorite 'get out of my head for a while' authors. Always smart and transporting in terms of characters and locale. Poirot is one of her best creations and has a lot of good character flaws and virtures. This book was a very good read.
This kept me guessing until the very end!
