If you read my last post, you’ll know that I apparently needed a lot of Agatha Christie-esque stories in my life right now. But this one is not only Poirot instead of Marple, but it’s also not actually written by Christie! This book has actually been published in the past few years, with an author called Sophie Hannah writing in Christie’s style. Of course this sort of writing comes with risks, but I think Hannah did really well and captured the writing style as much as possible.
I don’t want to say much about the plot itself, as obviously this book is a mystery and I don’t want to spoil it. But I will say that this concept is really cool and something that I enjoyed with it darting around to different locations and having everything all wrapping up together at the end.
I actually read the whole book in one sitting, which doesn’t happen very often anymore as it was engrossing and I just needed to know the ending! This is the first book in a series of new Poirot (and there are at least 3 out so far) so keep an eye out for these guys!!
