Curtain : Poirot's last case by Agatha Christie( Sound Recording )
5 editions published between 1975 and 2002 in English and held by 81 libraries worldwide
The house guests at Styles seemed perfectly pleasant to Captain Hastings: there was his own daughter Judith, an ornithologist called Norton, dashing Mr Allerton, brittle Miss Cole, Doctor Franklin and his fragile wife Barbara, Nurse Craven, Colonel Luttrell and his charming wife Daisy, and the charismatic Boyd-Carrington. So Hastings was shocked when Poirot declared that one of them was a five-times murderer. True, the aging detective was crippled with arthritis, but had his deductive instincts finally deserted him?
Canterbury tales by Geoffrey Chaucer( file )
