Peril at End House is a worthy entry in Christie's Hercule Poirot portfolio. The story contains plenty of intrigue, deception and danger to satisfy any mystery lover.

At the start Poirot is retired and intends to stay that way. His endearing conceit lets slip that England will no longer have its finest detective on hand to solve crimes, but the time has come to step aside for a younger generation to assume the responsibility. Naturally, a murder eventually finds Poirot and his sense of duty pulls him back into the fold. No doubt his innate curiosity had something to do with it too.

I appreciate the charm of Poirot being slightly off his game in this book as he is occasionally caught unaware by events. Seeing the famed detective flustered from time to time is a welcomed departure.
