The Monogram Murders is the new Hercule Poirot novel. For the first time ever the guardians of Agatha Christie’s legacy have approved a brand new novel, featuring Poirot. It is written by popular psychological crime writer, Sophie Hannah.

 

Hercule Poirot’s quiet supper in a London coffee house is interrupted when a young woman confides in him that she is about to be murdered. She is terrified, but begs Poirot not to find and punish her killer. Once she is dead, she insists, justice will have been done.

 

Later that night, Poirot learns that three guests at the fashionable Bloxham hotel have been murdered, a cufflink placed in each one’s mouth. Could there be a connection with the frightened woman? While Poirot struggles to put together the bizarre pieces of the puzzle, the murderer prepares another hotel room for a fourth victim…

 

Poirot plunges into a mystery set in 1920’s London, a diabolically clever puzzle that can only be solved by the talented Belgian detective and his ‘little grey cells’.
