An outbreak of apparent kleptomania at a student hostel is not normally the sort of crime that arouses Hercule Poirot's interest, but it is a bizarre list of stolen and vandalised items: a stethoscope, some lightbulbs, some old flannel trousers, a box of chocolates, a slashed rucksack, some boracic powder and a diamond ring later found in a bowl of a soup. Celia Austin quickly confesses to the pettier incidents to attract the attention of a male student. The next morning she is discovered dead from an overdose of morphine, and Poirot sees through the attempts to make her death seem like suicide.

A great novel in the Hercule Poirot series. Not only is this a story that will keep you guessing until the end revelation, it also offers an insight into how British society viewed immigrants, particularly from the West Indies. What's also interesting is to see how Christie uses the protagonist to promote tolerance towards other cultures. I strongly recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a good read and a good mystery.

The story as it proceeds becomes really boring. The conclusion is uninteresting. Even the explanation is not justified.
