Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, but just like the nursery rhyme, there were five other "little pigs" who could have done it: Philip Blake (the stockbroker), who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist), who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcÉ e), who had her roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess), who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister), who cried all the way home.Sixteen years later, Caroline's daughter is determined to prove her mother's innocence, and Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind.This title was previously published as Murder in Retrospect.

This one is fun, but I found it rather average by Hercule Poirot standards considering how often it shows up on "best of" Agatha Christie lists.

The framing device she uses here, solving a murder 16 years after the fact, is intriguing because so much of the trail has gone cold for Poirot. He must rely almost entirely on the memories of those who were involved, and that doesn't include the most significant of all witnesses, the accused, because she's been dead for nearly as long.
