A Holiday for Murder by Agatha Christie

About A Holiday for Murder by Agatha Christie: Motives for Murder: A fortune in uncut diamonds, hidden by an eccentric old man
A woman's love, too freely given
A business empire built on ruthlessness

Each of them may have been a motive for the brutal slaying of wealthy old Simeon Lee. Coupled with Lee's family, each member of which hated him and wished to see him dead, they presented Hercule Poirot with a baffling challenge--one which the astute detective solved only through his uncanny ability to see "the little things."

My two cents

A re-read of my uber-ratty copy! Love Agatha Christie!

The Christmas season is not the time for good cheer, in fact it is a murderous season. Simeon Lee's puzzling murder (a closed door, a wail from hell, lots of blood, and seemingly no means of escape for the murderer) puts each his family members under suspicion. Money? Power? Revenge? Who killed him ... and how? Poirot comes in and gives us another surprising solution to the mystery. The clue: the character of the man murdered.
