Analyzing Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case

Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, published in 1975, was the last book put out before Agatha Christie’s death. It was, in fact, written some thirty years prior, in the mid-1940s, intended to be published after her death.

It is probably because of this intentional gap between when it was written and published that the story feels a little superficial.
