My Year With Agatha: Poirot 7-9

Good Afternoon! 

Happy reading! This week, I am reviewing Poirot series 7-9. These three are my Christie favorites so far! :)

Peril at End House
Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings meet the vivacious Nick Buckley, the reckless young owner of End House. While on a train ride, she confesses to having several recent attempts made on her life. Hercule Poirot vows to keep her safe and uncover the would-be murder before they succeed in killing Miss Buckley. I'm don't know why this one is not more popular! I loved it! 


Lord Edgware Dies
Loved this one! An actress hires Hercule Poirot to convince her husband to divorce her so she can then marry her lover, the Duke of Merton. She jokes that if he doesn't agree to the divorce, she will have to kill him herself. The next day, Lord Edgware is found murdered in his home. Lady Edgware is the obvious suspect, but she has a rock-solid alibi. Poirot must determine who else could possibly have means and motive to murder the victim. 

The Murder on the Orient Express
I've read (or listened to) this book at least three times already, and it never gets old. A mystery classic, this story centers around the murder of Mr. Ratchett, who is later revealed to be a well-known criminal in the U.S.A. How to determine the murderer when the man had so many enemies? Hercule Poirot must interview the train's passengers to find out who had the most likely motive and opportunity to take out Mr. Ratchett. A must-read for both Christie fans and for fans of mystery novels in general!
