Review by

Mrs Oliver calls Poirot in when she feels something is not quite right on a murder hunt she is arranging for a local fete. When the girl playing the victim of the murder hunt is actually murdered Poirot uncovers a web of deceit and greed. An interesting plot and a good read.

Review by

Intriguing idea: a murder takes place during a murder-mystery event. I didn't guess 'who dunnit' but did rather feel that Poirot was in the dark then knew everything rather suddenly and in a way the reader couldn't have reasoned.
