Dumb Witness

Dumb Witness - Agatha Christie Very entertaining entry in the Poirot series. Just when you think you have gone through all possible Poirot story lines, Agatha Christie always manages to squeenze in an original one.

In `dumb witness', Poirot investigates a seemingly perfectly natural death of an old lady leaving her extraordinary wealth to her companion, as such disinheriting her family.

Very intriguing plot and again a very nice insight in the upper class society of the interbellum Great Britain.
