    Before there were Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings there were Jules Poiret and Captain Haven Monsieur Poiret was a retired French police detective He was short and rather plump with a military mustache; he was an immaculate dresser a stickler for neatness and rather egotistical He used his world class intellect to solve crimes that escaped others' solution It is uite obvious that Agatha Christie patterned much of Poirot after Poiret although Christie's character was much a real person than Frank Howell Evans' Poiret in my opinionThe Murder of Lady Malvern is a uick fun read that contains the reuisite red herrings and misdirections It had me guessing to the very end as to the identity of the murderer of Poiret's friend Lady MalvernThis was the second of the Jules Poiret series I plan on soon reading the first Peril and then continuing my reading with as many of the rest of the ten Poiret books as I can find

    Good intriguing mystery with some funny moments Once again characters and plot engaged my curiosity and desire to see the resolution of the mystery And despite the inevitable comparisons with Hercule Poirot they stood on their own I also found it refreshing that the victim was a close friend of Poiret'sSide Note The edition I read would benefit with a bit of editing as many of the dialogues were featured in the same paragraphs and not separated from one another Though I think that has been addressed by now
