from the book cover:
‘The first letter warned Hercule Poirot where the killer would strike. Andover, it said, on the 21st. But Poirot was too late to save old Mrs. Ascher from death.
When the second letter came, Poirot moved fast. but again, he was too late. This time the victim was a good-looking waitress named Betty Barnard, and she was found dead on the beach, strangled with her own belt.
Each letter was signed A.B.C. Each victim was found with an A.B.C. railroad timetable under her body. There was little else for Poirot to go on. For the first time in his career the master sleuth was powerless against a maniacal killer who was running circles around the police of an entire nation!’
It’s Agatha Christie, it was excellent. What more can I say! I am never disappointed with Christie.
If you want to watch the full episode of The ABC Murders from ITV’s Poirot series you can catch it on Youtube! I will be watching it tonight!
Have you heard there is to be a new Poirot novel out in Sept. 2014! Yes by Sophie Hannah and approved by the Christie family. Read about it HERE
