Unpleasant things are going on in an exclusive school for girls - things like murder... Late one night, two teachers investigate a mysterious flashing light in the sports pavilion, while the rest of the school sleeps. There, among the lacrosse sticks, they stumble upon the body of the unpopular games mistress - shot through the heart from point blank range. The school is thrown into chaos when the 'cat' strikes again. Unfortunately, schoolgirl Julia Upjohn knows too much. In particular, she knows that without Hercule Poirot's help, she will be the next victim...

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.
