As my husband and I make our way to football games this fall, we are also making our way through the many Agatha Christie novels featuring Hercule Poirot. We are endeavoring to listen to them in order, but our youngest son, who has become hooked as well, jumped ahead of us. On our latest road trip, the three of us listened to The ABC Murders. The premise was intriguing — Poirot receives letters warning in advance murders to occur. Poirot is behind the game as he investigates and endeavors to determine the killer before he can strike again. This mystery didn’t hold my interest as much as others in the series. I actually dozed off and missed murder #3! We also figured out whodunit, including the motive, prior to Poirot. Have you read this one? What did you think?
There’s a serial killer on the loose, bent on working his way though the alphabet. There seems little chance of the murderer being caught — until her makes the crucial and vain mistake of challenging Hercule Poirot to frustrate his plans . . .
Are you a classic mystery fan? What’s your favorite element?
