"Hercule Poirot is traveling by luxury passenger coach from London to the exclusive Kingfisher Hill estate. Richard Devonport has summoned the renowned detective to prove that his fiancée, Helen, is innocent of the murder of his brother, Frank. Poirot will have only days to investigate before Helen is hanged, but there is one strange condition attached: he must conceal his true reason for being there from the rest of the Devonport family. The coach is forced to stop when a distressed woman demands to get off, insisting that if she stays in her seat, she will be murdered. Although the rest of the journey passes without anyone being harmed, Poirot's curiosity is aroused, and his fears are later confirmed when a body is discovered with a macabre note attached... Could this new murder and the peculiar incident on the coach be clues to solving the mystery of who killed Frank Devonport? And if Helen is innocent, can Poirot find the true culprit in time to save her from the gallows?"-- Provided by publisher.

I'm have been a huge fan of Poirot escapades for many many years. I have read two Sophie Hannah novels in her footsteps as Agatha Christie. This book was somewhat frustrating and the twists and turns in this plot felt cumbersome! The conclusion of guilty party didn't flow in true Agatha Christie fashion; and it was not clear how and why Poirot was able to pool resources to make decision. I will continue to miss Christie!

A pleasant read, but 98% of the book was dedicated to building a foundation that was resolved more quickly than the lead-up demanded. And there were too many red herrings. Still, not the worst book I've read this year.
