Returning home after lunch one day, Hercule Poirot finds an angry 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 a Barnabas Pandy and has accused nobody of murder. Shaken, he goes inside, only to find that he has a visitor waiting for him - a man who also claims also to have received a letter from Poirot that morning, accusing him of the murder of Barnabas Pandy....

Very boring! Too long (Christie books are much shorter and to the point)! Dull characters (boring conversations). Unnecessary subplots about mobbing in school, abortion, relationships between father and son, mother and son in law to be, cake and much more. Repetitive. Plot did not make much sense in the end, some points were not cleared up. Conclusion not ingenious enough for a Poirot mystery, no clues, no evidence revealed in the end. Cannot understand good reviews. Nobody can write as well as Christie, but Hannah doesn't even try. Stick to Christie.

Stuck in a traffic jam, Nicki Clements sees a face she hoped never to see again. It's definitely him, the same police officer, stopping each car on Elmhirst Road. Keen to avoid him, Nicki does a U-turn and makes a panicky escape. Or so she thinks. The next day, Nicki is pulled in for questioning in connection with the murder of Damon Blundy, controversial newspaper columnist and resident of Elmhirst Road. Nicki can't answer any of the questions detectives fire at her. She has no idea why the killer used a knife in such a peculiar way, or why 'he is no less dead' was painted on Blundy's study wall.

August 30, 1975: the day of the disappearance. The day Somerset, New Hampshire, lost its innocence. That summer, struggling author Harry Quebert fell in love with 15-year-old Nola Kellergan. Thirty-three years later, her body is dug up from his yard, along with a manuscript copy of the novel that secured his lasting fame. Quebert is the only suspect. Marcus Goldman - Quebert’s most gifted protégé - throws off his writer’s block to clear his mentor’s name. Solving the case and penning a new best seller soon merge into one.

This is the worst book that I have ever heard and does not even deserve one star. I had difficulty going on hearing it. The storyline, the dialogues are so bad, I wonder how this book got printed. The last words were really uncanny. Those who already heard them will know what I mean. I was glad the book was over!!!

Even though Agatha Raisin loathes Christmas panto, her friend, Mrs Bloxby, the vicar's wife, has persuaded her to support the local am dram society in their festive offering. Stifling a yawn at the production of Babes in the Wood, Agatha watches the baker playing an ogre strut and threaten onstage until a trapdoor opens, followed by a scream and silence! Surely this wasn't the way the scene was rehearsed. When it turns out the local baker had been murdered most horribly, Agatha puts her team of detectives on the case.

A therapist moved into the village of Carsely, and Agatha Raisin hated her. Not only was this therapist, Jill Davent, romancing Agatha's ex-husband, but she had dug up details of Agatha's slum background. Added to that, Jill was counselling a woman called Gwen Simple from Winter Parva, and Agatha firmly believed Gwen to have assisted her son in some grisly murders, although has no proof she had done so.

Penelope Keith - who starred as Agatha Raisin in the popular BBC Radio 4 series – reads M. C. Beaton’s eagerly-awaited murder mystery. Agatha Raisin has never been one for enforced holiday cheer, but her friendly little village of Carsely has always prided itself on its traditional Christmas festivities. However, this year Mr John Sunday has chosen Christmas as the time to crack down on what he sees as gross misconduct by everyone. But when Mr Sunday goes too far, he is soon found lying face down in the petunias, very much dead.

Home Sweet Home. Als Agatha Raisin nach einer anstrengenden Weltreise ihr Cotswolds-Cottage betritt, ist sie heilfroh, endlich wieder zu Hause zu sein. Die Freude währt allerdings nicht lange, denn in Agathas Abwesenheit hat ihr attraktiver Nachbar James doch tatsächlich mit einer anderen Frau angebandelt! Mary Fortune heißt das blutjunge Ding, das leidenschaftlich gern gärtnert - ganz im Gegensatz zu Agatha. Trotzdem ist diese sich sicher, die unliebsame Konkurrentin in der bevorstehenden Gartenschau zu übertrumpfen. Doch dazu kommt es erst gar nicht, denn ausgerechnet Agatha stolpert eines Nachts über Marys Leiche - und die steckt kopfüber in einem Blumenkübel.
