Hercule Poirot To Flex His Little Grey Cells Once More

THE THIRD GIRLAgatha Christie’s estate and HarperCollins plan to publish a new Hercule Poirot mystery next fall.  British author Sophie Hannah has been commissioned to write the new Poirot 93 years after he was first introduced in The Mysterious Affair at Styles.  The Belgian sleuth was killed off in the final Poirot novel Curtain published shortly before Ms. Christie’s death in 1975.  The new book will be set in the late 1920s, but will not feature Poirot’s friend Captain Hastings. In a statement, Ms. Hannah said: “It is almost impossible to put into words how honored I am to have been entrusted with this amazing project — in fact, I still can’t quite believe that this is really happening! I hope to create a puzzle that will confound and frustrate the incomparable Hercule Poirot for at least a good few chapters.” Read more in this article.
