New Agatha Christie Novel Is Coming

Agatha Christie may no longer be with us, but her works are still being published — sort of. Thirty-nine years after the last Hercule Poirot novel, Sophie Hannah is adding a new twist to the story of the famous detective. Hannah, the author of six mystery novels, is adding a new book to the Poirot canon: “The Monogram Murders.” The book will be set in 1920s London, around the time of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd. HarperCollins, releasing the book on September 9th, describes it as “a diabolically clever puzzle that will test [Poirot’s] brilliant skills and baffle and delight longtime Christie fans and new generations of readers discovering him for the first time.” I doubt I’ll read it, but I will watch the inevitable television adaptation.
