The Monogram Murders (Sophie Hannah)
Later that night, Poirot learns that three guests at the fashionable Bloxham Hotel have been murdered, a cufflink placed in each one's mouth. Could there be a connection with the frightened woman?
While Poirot struggles to put together the pieces of the puzzle, the murderer prepares another hotel bedroom for a fourth victim...
Quote: "I did not want to talk about the Bloxham Murders ever again. What I wanted - needed - was to write about them, to set down on paper every detail of what had happened. It mystified me that I was so eager to do the latter and so reluctant to undertake the former. Why should writing about a thing be so different from speaking about it?"
Why this book speaks to me: I was happily surprised. This story captures the spirit and voice of Agatha Christie as I remember with a little touch of the 21st century.
As sceptical as I was at first, I really enjoyed it. However, I am no Hercule Poirot expert.
Overall, a good read!
