Engaging mystery but not enough Poirot

I've been a Christie fan since 8th grade and have read them all so many times that I always remember whodunit. Nevertheless, I find them a relaxing and enjoyable read when I'm taking a break from more weighty fiction. This offering is not one of my favorites, mostly because Hercules Poirot, though he makes an appearance, is not central to the story which focuses instead on a young friend of his who finds himself pulled into a murder mystery when he is investigating a case of espionage. The mystery itself is quite enjoyable and the solution satisfying as always; I just prefer to snuggle in with Poirot or Miss Marple when I have the chance.
