Peril at the end house by Agatha Christie.
Hercule Poirot as detective and his friend Hastings as Co-detective. Is on holiday at Majestic hotel in St Loo.
Meanwhile they found a young girl Named " Nick Buckley" , and her life in grave danger.
This young girl had already 3 escapes from death.
How our Poirot solves this mystery by using his grey cells 🕵️♂️? Any deaths during or before investigation ?
Title Peril at end house, This end house belongs to Nick Buckley.
Hastings played as just narrator to us and a friend to Poirot. If he do investigation with Poirot and find culprit is nice I thought.
But it's ok. Poirot wont leave anyone, but Hastings sees everyone as good , until Poirot proves them.
