When the hardest part of solving the crime is

Appointment with Death - Agatha Christie

that everyone's a suspect.

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this one. The victim, Mrs. Boynton, is a masterful character study of a truly awful person. Hercule Poirot works his psychological magic even though every single character in this book - save himself - had a motive for murder. The exotic Jerusalem setting is fun, and Sarah King is one of my favorite secondary characters so far. 

 

The epilogue was a lot of fun, as well. Sometimes the world really is a better place with someone NOT in it.
