A revolution in the Middle East has a direct and deadly impact upon the summer term at Meadowbank, a picture-perfect girls' school in the English countryside. Prince Ali Yusuf, Hereditary Sheikh of Ramat, whose great liberalizing experiment -- 'hospitals, schools, a Health Service' -- is coming to chaos, knows that he must prepare for the day of his exile. He asks his pilot and school friend, Bob Rawlinson, to care for a packet of jewels. Rawlinson does so, hiding them among the possessions of his niece, Jennifer Sutcliffe, who is bound for Meadowbank. Rawlinson is killed before he can reveal the hiding place--or even the fact that he has employed his niece as a smuggler. But someone knows, or suspects, that Jennifer has the jewels. As murder strikes Meadowbank, only Hercule Poirot can restore the peace.

Not your typical Poirot novel as he doesn't appear until 2/3 of the way through. Good story overall, as with any Christie novel.
The real mystery solver is a young girl. Poirot shows up to fill in the details.

Excellent plot, lots of suspense, diverse set of possible suspects and for he at least a bit of a surprise. Pirot readily solves it.
Charmingly set at a high society girls school as well as the Middle East.

This goes onto my Christie Top Ten List.
