Hercule Poirot was a well-known and respected private detective from Belgium. He was famous for cracking murder cases that seemed unsolvable and baffling. In this book, Hercule Poirot’s Christmas, Agatha Christie wrote a murder that involved the family of Simeon Lee. Simeon Lee invited all his sons and daughters-in-law and grand-daughter to a Christmas get-together. Some of whom had not met Simeon Lee for many years. The family acrimony and distrusts among members were laid bare in the open.
When a murder happened in the household, everyone in the house became a suspect with likely motive to carry out the evil deed. Who was the killer?
Hercule Poirot came into the picture to investigate. I like the systematic and logical analysis of Poirot. He was able to see through lies and poke holes in the statements of these people. He used criminal psychology to solve this murder. One could learn a lot about criminal minds from Hercule Poirot.
