ABC Murders - Hercule Poirot, Bk 13 Author:Agatha Christie 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 t... more »he killer is about to strike again. It is one of Poirot's most challenging cases yet.
The ABC Murders proves to be the Belgian sleuth's most challenging case with Poirot trying to decipher each cryptic message and getting one step ahead of this clever and ruthless killer. I have always enjoy Agatha Christie's novels and this one is not excluded. I found it to be highly interesting with a lot of sleight of hand and subterfuge involve. I would recommend it for anyone interested in reading a story from the Queen of Crime..Agatha Christie.
