Inhoud

This, the final volume in a series that has been delighting the world since 1920, will be acclaimed by Hercule Poirot's legion of admirers as probably the best of all, even while saddening them because it is to be his last appearance.
In Curtain the wheel has come full circle, and the little Belgian detective is back once more at the country house where he made his bow in Agatha Christie's first detective story, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

Styles is now a guest-house, and Poirot one of the guests. He invites his old friend Hastings to join him there, and confides the professional reason for his ultimate reunion. Among those at Styles is someone responsible for several murders, yet someone the law cannot touch. Poirot is reluctant to name his suspect.

But soon there is another death at Styles - and this time, with Hasting's daughter omong the guests and suspects, even he contemplates murder!

Written over thirty years ago, but held back until now, this novel is a thriumphant climax to the sequence, as Poirot solves his last case in a fashion characteristically brilliant and unorthodox.
