Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0425177416, Mass Market Paperback)Christie, Poirot--and murder--are never out of season. A family get-together for the holidays begins with a game, and ends in cold-blooded murder. Who better to solve it than Poirot, who "has solved some puzzling mysteries in his time but never has his mighty brain functioned more brilliantly than in Hercule Poirot's Christmas" (New York Times).

It is Christmas Eve. The Lee family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed by a high-pitched wailing scream. Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed. But when Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man.
