9780007119295: The ABC Murders (Poirot)

Agatha Christie’s world-famous serial killer mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

There’s a serial killer on the loose, bent on working his way through the alphabet. And as a macabre calling card he leaves beside each victim’s corpe the ABC Railway Guide open at the name of the town where the murder has taken place.

Having begun with Andover, Bexhill and then Churston, there seems little chance of the murderer being caught – until he makes the crucial and vain mistake of challenging Hercule Poirot to frustrate his plans…

Review:

“There is no more cunning player of the murder game than Agatha Christie.” Sunday Times

“A masterwork of carefully concealed artifice… most stunningly original.” Julian Symons

“An Agatha Christie triumph.” Morning Post

”The best thing she has ever written, compact, witty and horribly exciting.” Sunday Referee

“An entirely original idea.” Daily Telegraph

“Mrs Christie has invented an entirely new plot for a detective story – a difficult thing in these days; she is to be congratulated on the perfection of her invention.” The Times

“Her best yet. Where does she get hold of these brilliant notions?” Bristol Evening Post

“Vive Hercule Poirot! He is back again … and I, for one, am thrilled to the marrow bones … the most amazing finale for sheer ingenuity that I have ever come across … Mrs Christie has pulled it off yet again.” The Bystander

Book Description:

The murderer is also playing a game with Hercule Poirot, alerting him in advance to the locations of the murders. But each time Poirot arrives it is already too late. Intrigued by the psychopath’s mind and methodology Hercule Poirot, with the help of Hastings and Japp, travels the length and breadth of England - determined to track this ruthless killer down.
