Hercule Poirot's Christmas - Poirot (Hardback)Agatha Christie (author)
- Not available
Waterstones Exclusive Edition
It is Christmas Eve and not everyone is feeling full of the spirit of the season.
At the house of Simeon Lee the family gathers, estranged and embittered they hover around the cold-hearted, ailing patriarch awaiting the reason they have all been summoned.
Then the family reunion is shattered by a deafening crash of furniture, followed by a high-pitched wailing scream.
Upstairs, the tyrannical Simeon Lee lies dead in a pool of blood, his throat slashed.
But when Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the village with a friend for Christmas, offers to assist, he finds an atmosphere not of mourning but of mutual suspicion. It seems everyone had their own reason to hate the old man...
Agatha Christie's seasonal mystery thriller, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.
The reigning queen of crime, Agatha Christie’s life took her from her home in the Devon countryside to Cairo, Australia and, of course, a journey on the Orient Express. She created two of the most famous detectives in literature, the moustached Belgian super-sleuth Hercule Poirot and the deceptively genteel village investigator Miss Marple, as well as creating the longest running stage play The Mousetrap.
