The world’s most beloved detective, Hercule Poirot—the legendary star of Agatha Christie’s Murder on the Orient Express—returns in a sleek, delectable mystery where the detective, inconceivably, finds himself accused of misdeeds
THE MYSTERY OF THREE QUARTERS
“How dare you? How dare you send me such a letter?”
Returning home one day, Hercule Poirot finds a furious woman waiting outside his front door. She demands to know why Poirot has sent her a letter accusing her of the murder of Barnabas Pandy, a man she has neither heard of nor ever met. Poirot has also never heard of Pandy, and he has certainly accused nobody of his murder. Shaken, he goes inside, only to find that he has a visitor waiting for him—a man who claims to have received a nearly identical letter from Poirot that morning. . . .
Poirot wonders how many more letters of this sort have been sent in his name. Who sent them, and why? It is precisely because he is the great Hercule Poirot that he would never knowingly accuse an innocent person of a crime. Someone is trying to make mischief and wants Poirot involved. More important, who is Barnabas Pandy? Is he even dead, and if so, was he murdered? Can Poirot find the missing link and discover the truth without putting more lives in danger?
With the help of his little gray cells and the assistance of Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard, Poirot must solve an elaborate puzzle involving a tangled web of relationships, scandalous secrets, and past misdeeds. Twisty, compulsive, and slyly brilliant, once again Sophie Hannah expertly revitalizes the most precise and charming detective of all time.

Recenzii

“Sophie Hannah’s third “New Hercule Poirot Mystery” proves to be most satisfying…faithful to its model in the essentials but flexible enough to allow for an animated plot and protagonist.”
“Another ingeniously deceptive puzzle…. The gratifying reveal is a neat variation on one of Christie’s own solutions and demonstrates Hannah’s facility at combining her own plotting gifts with another author’s creation.”
“[Hannah] supplies boundless ingenuity... adding a divinely inspired denouement.”
“It’s safe to say Agatha Christie fans will rejoice that Poirot has returned, keener than ever to solve the case.”
“It’s easy to see why the Agatha Christie estate chose Ms. Hannah for the daunting task of chronicling Poirot’s continuing adventures. In her capable hands, Hercule Poirot lives and investigates as creatively and astutely as he ever has.”
“A puzzle worthy of the skills of legendary detective Hercule Poirot.... Hannah once again nails the style and substance of her beloved predecessor, producing another treat for Christie fans.”
“The plot of this mystery is worthy of Agatha Christie’s fame. It is compelling and uses Hercule Poirot’s talents well to solve this most vexing of cases.”
“Hercule Poirot fans, rejoice! The fastidious Belgian detective with the amazing little gray cells and equally amazing moustache is back…. I had forgotten how enjoyable, and intricate, the plotting of a Poirot mystery is…. I loved it!”
“Sophie Hannah does an egoless, silky job of reviving Agatha Christies beloved Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. . . . Enough so to hope that Hannah turns to Miss Marple next.”
“A thoroughly enjoyable tale from start to finish. Poirot … is in fine hands with author Sophie Hannah.”
“As tricky as anything written by Agatha Christie.... Poirot is back.”
Classic Christie . . . Captures the essence of the originals without being a slavish imitation . . . Clues emerge, but the case remains perplexing. Christie aficionados will delight in the familiar repartee and the intricate deduction of the solution.”
