The Labours of Hercules [Christie]

Book: The Labours of Hercules [Poirot # 26]
Author: Agatha Christie

Review: Prior to retirement, celebrated Belgium detective Hercule Poirot decides to take on 12 last cases that are reminiscent of the 'Labours of Hercules' in Greek mythology. 

Although an interesting idea, I enjoy a mystery when it is layered with suspects, red herrings and lots of details. I find it hard to sink my teeth into short stories, especially ones that were relatively easy to figure out. I enjoy Agatha Christie (obviously, anyone reading this blog can see I'm on an Agatha Christie kick right now!) and the Poirot series, I do not recommend this book

Grade: C
