Description


In Agatha Christie’s classic, Five Little Pigs, beloved detective Hercule Poirot races to solve a case from out of the past.

Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, but just like the nursery rhyme, there were five other “little pigs” who could have done it: Philip Blake (the stockbroker), who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist), who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcée), who had her roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess), who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister), who cried all the way home.

Sixteen years later, Caroline’s daughter is determined to prove her mother’s innocence, and Poirot just can’t get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.

Praise For…


“The answer to the riddle is brilliant.”

“A brilliant piece of detective fiction, in which character plays an important part.”

“Straightforward bamboozling from start to finish.”

“As usual, Mrs. Christie hoaxes us with a double twist at the denouement, and provides excellent entertainment.”

“Agatha Christie never fails us, and her Five Little Pigs presents a very pretty problem for the ingenious reader.”
