Agatha Christie’s beloved classic novel sets Hercule Poirot on the trail of a serial killer—now a limited streaming series starring John Malkovich, Rupert Grint, and Tara Fitzgerald.

“There is no more cunning player of the murder game than Agatha Christie.”— Sunday Times (London)

“Let us see, Mr. Clever Poirot, just how clever you can be.”

There’s a serial killer on the loose, working his way through the alphabet and the whole country is in a state of panic.

A is for Mrs. Ascher in Andover, B is for Betty Barnard in Bexhill, C is for Sir Carmichael Clarke in Churston. With each murder, the killer is getting more confident—but leaving a trail of deliberate clues to taunt the proud Hercule Poirot might just prove to be the first, and fatal, mistake.

This is now my fourth Agatha Christie book and I am still amazed at how Poirot discovers who the murderer is. I thought this was a great book overall, but some of the different parts of the plot and ending confused me very easily. Other than that I give this book a 9/10 just because at times it could be boring, but most of it was fast paced and energetic. I liked how the killer would throw all of the British detectives onto multiple cold trails and leave them wondering where to go from there while M. Poirot didn't waiver onto any of the clever killer's sidetracks. Every time I read a Agatha Christie book I can actually feel myself slipping between the pages, like I am standing right next to Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings. I strongly recommend this book to any person that likes a good mystery. M.S.B.

The “A.B.C. Murders” by Agatha Christie follows detective Hercule Poitot, helped along by Captain Hastings, as he tries to stop a chain of murders by a serial killer, who kills his victims in alphabetical order. First up is tobacco shop owner Alice Ascher, followed by a waitress Betty Bernard, and then by wealthy and well-to-do Carmichael Clarke. Poirot meets with the relatives of the victims, who decide to band together to help stop the next murder. The story is narrated from different characters. It does take some time to build, and at first I was weary about the serial killer plot. But the resolution was classic Christie—unguessable yet completely logical. There’s a major red herring in the book, and not all the characters are as they claim to be. The twisty ending made me like this book. It’s apparently been turned into a TV show, which should be intriguing to watch.

A great book, though starts off kind of slow for me

It was slow and slightly confusing at first, but Christie shows her genius again and again through the workings of her most famous detective, Hercule Poirot. I most definetly suggest reading it.

I just recently finished this novel. I found it quite pleasing, and when I thought I knew who the murderer was, Agatha Christie places and unexpected turn in her novel. Once or twice it dragged on but that was all. I definetly reccommemd it.
