Was the killer working his way through the alphabet? That’s what M. Hercule Poirot wanted to know. And his offsider Captain Hastings was of the same mind.

Andover and the elderly Mrs Ascher; Bexhill and a young Miss Betty Barnard and Churston and a gentleman by the name of Sir Carmichael Clarke had all met untimely deaths at the hands of a maniac who would leave the ABC Railway guide near to or on the body, showing each destination as proof he was once again bettering the police, but especially M. Poirot. With Scotland Yard involved, plus Poirot and Hastings – surely they would get to the bottom of the dastardly murders before “D” arrived.

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie is #13 in the Hercule Poirot series and another excellent crime novel. I always enjoy M. Poirot’s deductions; the way his little grey cells get a work-out. Highly entertaining, and once again, highly recommended.
