9780062073587: The A.B.C. Murders (Hercule Poirot Mysteries)

Alice Ascher, a shopkeeper in Andover, is bludgeoned to death at her place of work. Next to die is Miss Bernard in Bexhill, then Mr. Clarke in Churston. More disturbing than the alphabetic sequence of the killings or the ABC Railway guide that the killer leaves at the scene of each crime are the taunting notes Hercule Poirot receives each time the killer is about to strike again. It is one of Poirot's most challenging cases yet.

Product Description:

There's a serial killer on the loose. His macabre calling card is to leave the ABC Railway guide beside each victim's body. But if A is for Alice Asher, bludgeoned to death in Andover; and B is for Betty Bernard, strangled with her belt on the beach at Bexhill; then who will Victim C be?

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
