Hungry for a new Poirot case to solve?

This new Hercule Poirot tale equals the complexity of Agatha Christie's plots. Author, Sophie Hannah, has captured the famous detective's eccentricities perfectly as seen through the eyes of Scotland Yard's Edward Catchpool.

The three murder victims all arrived at the Bloxham Hotel on the same day, had tea together and were later found dead. Monogrammed cufflinks were found in the mouths of the bodies. Could it be that a fourth death will make up two pairs of cufflinks?

The murders are identical, so for Poirot 'the smallest divergences are of the utmost importance'. These differences he finds and scrutinises, once again guiding the reader to a satisfying solution.

The Monogram Murders has full Christie-family backing and will keep the midnight oil burning. Once read, you may hope that Sophie Hannah intends to busy her quill inventing another poser for Poirot.
