Hercule Poirot is called on to investigate the murder of a brother and sister, in this classic Agatha Christie mystery now available in an updated edition with a foreword Sophie Hannah.

nbsp;"He was murdered, wasn't he?"

When Cora Lansquenet is savagely murdered, the extraordinary remark she had made the previous day at her brother Richard's funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance. At the reading of Richard's will, Cora was clearly heard to say, "It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it. But he was murdered, wasn't he?"

Did Cora's accusation a dark truth that sealed her own fate? Or are the siblings' deaths just tragic coincidences?

Desperate to know the truth, the Lansquenet's solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery. For even after the funeral, death isn't finished yet . . .

I identified the most significant clues along the way; but alas I missed identifying the murderer in the end. Well done Agatha!

People don't see themselves as they appear to other people. They always see themselves in a glass that is as a reversed image.

Everyone has something to hide, but nothing can be ignored.
