KIRKUS REVIEW

Good but not her best, in a merry-go-round de luxe -- another Poirot story. Super passer, as a dentist is murdered, a harmless spinster and a Greek, both patients, are killed, with a third patient as intended victim of attack. A prominent financier-politician, he hires Poirot, who starts with the political and does a reverse to the personal, tunneling through blackmail, bigamy, an alias or two, to get his man. Doesn't hold too fast at the seems, but slick sidetracking.
