Five Little Pigs, Hardback
5 out of 5 (1 rating)


A womanising painter was poisoned 16 years ago by his wife, but now his daughter believes she was innocent all along...Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried 'wee wee wee' all the way home.

It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind...

Review by

This is my perfect Poirot. Sixteen years ago Amyas Crane was poisoned by his wife - but in her last letter to her daughter Caroline Crane protested her innocence and her daughter wants to find out what really happened. The five little pigs of the title are the five main witnesses to the crime, any of whom could have really killed Amyas.
