In Which Poirot Studies the ABC......
on 29 August 2017
M. Poirot is faced with the daunting case of a twisted serial killer, stalking the country, oddly leaving an 'ABC' railway guide as his/her calling card at the scene of each murder. Furthermore, the murders are following on alphabetically in sequence for both names of victims and place names. The killer is deliberately teasing M. Poirot with clues and the country is up in arms. An enjoyable psychological mystery that Poirot must solve to prevent the continuation of deaths. Packed with red herrings, clever misdirection and prose, narration switching between first and third person, psychological study - there's alot going on here - making for an excellent read and, furthermore, the absolutely superb denouement does not let us down. Rather different from the traditional murder mystery from Agatha Christie, there is a bigger element of realism here. Overall, very enjoyable indeed.
