Christie, Agatha
New York : Bantam, 1983.
ISBN 042513024X
Hercule Poirot is one of the most famous detectives from all Agatha Christie’s novels. He’s an older gentleman with a flashy mustache. He is _always_ clam, cool, and collected and he is very good at solving crimes. So good, in fact, that one day he receives this letter (read letter page 4.). Sure enough, on the 21st in Andover, Mrs. Ascher is murder in a simple cigar store robbery. Later, Betty Barnard is strangled on the beach in Bexhill. Then Sir Carmichael Clarke becomes a corpse in Churston. ABC - who’s next? The clues are all there. But you have to read carefully to figure it out.
