Bored with her old book club, Alicia Finlay decides to start a new one—dedicated to her favorite crime writer Agatha Christie. As she gathers seven quirky members together, little does Alicia know they’re about to stumble upon a real-life mystery of their own. When one member suddenly vanishes and her husband shows up murdered soon after, the club decide to do as the meddling Miss Marple would do, and investigate.
So begins the first exciting installment of the Agatha Christie Book Club (ACBC), a motley collection of amateur sleuths who use Christie as their guide to help solve a range of mysteries that fall into their lap. Following in the footsteps of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, the group must sort the clues from the red herrings to solve the murder of Arthur Parlour and determine what happened to his mysterious missing wife.
