7 out of 10

1991 Harper paperback of the 1933 Hercule Poirot classic, originally published as "Murder in the Calais Coach." Cover art, by Jenny Tylden-Wright, is identical the picture icon attached to this same ISBN. This was on my list of best old mysteries to read, when I found this copy today for 10 cents on the sale shelf in Dimond Library.

I can let this go after I read:
1920 The Mysterious Affair at Styles [read 2010]
1922 The Secret Adversary [read 2011]
1923 Murder on the Links [read 2011]
1924 Poirot Investigates (short stories) [read 2011]
1924 The Man in the Brown Suit [read 2013]
1925 The Adventure of the Clapham Cook (short story) [read 2013]
1925 The Secret of Chimneys [read 2013]
1926 The Murder of Roger Ackroyd [read 2014]
1927 The Big Four [read 2016]
1928 The Mystery of the Blue Train [read 2017]
1929 The Seven Dials Mystery [read 2017]
1929 Partners in Crime (short stories featuring Tommy and Tuppence) [read 2017]
1930 The Murder at the Vicarage [read 2017]
1930 The Mysterious Mr. Quin (short stories introducing Mr. Harley Quin) [n/a]
1930 Giant's Bread [not yet read]
1931 The Sittaford Mystery (Murder at Hazelmoor) [read 2017]
1932 Peril at End House [read 2017]
1932 The Thirteen Problems (The Tuesday Club Murders) (short stories featuring Miss Marple) [not yet read]
1933 Lord Edgware Dies (Thirteen at Dinner) [not yet read]
1933 Murder in the Calais Coach [read 2017]

Edit December 4, 2017: This is supposed to be one of the best procedurals, but with so many characters, I ended up skimming. The ending turned out to be a great twist, and final resolution. So for people who have the patience to get through all the clues rigamarole among so many characters, it will be a good read. I currently have this ranked at #364 on my ranked list of best-read books lately.
