Waterstones Says

Newly adapted for the BBC for autumn 2018, starring John Malkovich, The ABC Murders is an ingeniously plotted, multi-perspective mystery that puts Poirot on the trail of a devious serial killer.

Agatha Christie's world-famous serial killer mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.

There's a serial killer on the loose, bent on working his way through the alphabet. And as a macabre calling card he leaves beside each victim's corpe the ABC Railway Guide open at the name of the town where the murder has taken place.

Having begun with Andover, Bexhill and then Churston, there seems little chance of the murderer being caught - until he makes the crucial and vain mistake of challenging Hercule Poirot to frustrate his plans...

“ABC - A Brilliant Case for Poirot - set in Andover, Bexhill, Churston and.....now that would be telling”
