The Monogram Murders
The Monogram Murders The New Hercule Poirot Mystery By Hannah, Sophie Book - 2014

Honestly, no one will ever be Agatha Christie. Sophie Hannah didn't do a bad job, but she definitely included too much detail, especially at the end. I was so confused by the time I reached the solution that I ended up skimming several pages of lengthy and complicated explanation. The real Hercule Poirot - who loved order and method - would have laid out his solution much better. No offense to Ms. Hannah, as I certainly enjoyed the book, but it wasn't up to the standard of Agatha Christie. It wasn't fan-fiction, though. Much better than that. So, not a bad book, but much too involved and not quite genuine Christie fare.
