Review:

‘Immensely enjoyable.’ Daily Express

‘To read Agatha Christie at her best is to experience the rarefied pleasure of watching a faultless technician at work, and she is in top form in Cat Among the Pigeons.’ New York Times

From the Back Cover:

CAT AMONG THE PIGEONS

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 Updike knows too much. In particular, she knows that without Hercule Poirot’s help, she will be the next victim…

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is attribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

WHAT LINKS AN ENGLISH GIRL’S SCHOOL WITH A MIDDLE EASTERN REVOLUTION? AGATHA CHRISTIE PULLS OFF ANOTHER COUP WITH HER INGENIOUS PLOTTING.
