The Mystery of Three Quarters: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery
In the latest Hercule Poirot mystery, four people have received letters signed by Poirot accusing them of murder. The only thing is, Poirot didn’t write or send the letters. Furthermore, the victim mentioned in the letters, Barnabas Pandy, wasn’t even murdered. He accidentally drowned in the bathtub. So what does it all mean? Do the recipients of the letters have anything in common? Could it be that the death wasn’t an accident after all? That is what Poirot and his colleague from Scotland Yard, Edward Catchpool, intend to find out. For that, they must spend some time at gloomy Combingham Hall looking for something that links the four seemingly unconnected letter recipients. Poirot will have to rely on his gray cells to unravel complex relations and family secrets.
If this sounds interesting, and I definitely found it to be so, why not curl up with a cup of tea and see how Poirot unravels The Mystery of Three Quarters? I think it’s safe to say Agatha Christie fans will rejoice that Poirot has returned, keener than ever to solve the case.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
