AFTER THE FUNERAL Richard Abernethie died a very wealthy man. All the relatives who attended his funeral benefited by his death. Although the newspaper announcements of his death said 'suddenly athis residence; there was no reason to suspect that his death was anything but a natural one - or was there? One person certainly thought so, and old Mr Entwhistle, the family lawyer, was uneasy. He began to consider the various members of the Abernethie family. Though outwardly prosperous, how badly did they need the money old Richard's death-brought them? Succeeding events deepened Mr Entwhistle's uneasiness /into active alarm. How best could he serve the interests of the Abernethie family, and what would his dead friend Richard Abernethie have wished him to do? Entwhistle goes for help to Hercule Poirot, an old friend of his, and the little Belgian solves things in his own inimitable way; making sense out of apparent nonsense; piecing things together from such widely different clues as a piece of wedding cake and a bouquet of wax flowers. If there is one thing better than an Agatha Christie, it is an Agatha Christie with Poirot. AJer the Funeral shows this happy partnership at its unbeatable best.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
