One, Two, Buckle My Shoe Hardback

Part of the Poirot series

4 out of 5 (1 rating)


Shortly after Hercule Poirot's visit, a dentist lies murdered in his Harley Street practice...The dentist was found with a blackened hole below his right temple.

A pistol lay on the floor near his outflung right hand.

Later, one of his patients was found dead from a lethal dose of local anaesthetic.

A clear case of murder and suicide. But why would a dentist commit a crime in the middle of a busy day of appointments?

A shoe buckle holds the key to the mystery. Now - in the words of the rhyme - can Poirot pick up the sticks and lay them straight?

Review by

Another classic. The murder is intruiging. But my favourite bit is the opening as Poirot visits the dentist. Christie perfectly encapsulates the feeling of dread you get in the dentist's waiting room and the feeling of relief when its all over.
