"Christie herself, some might say, could do no better.... Enough
twists, turns, revelations and suspects to cook up a most
satisfying red-herring stew. Literary magic."--Washington
"Sophie Hannah does an egoless, silky job of reviving Agatha Christie's beloved Belgian detective Hercule Poirot...enough so to hope that Hannah turns to Miss Marple next."--USA Today
"Terrific.... uncanny. As Hercule Poirot himself would say, 'Bravo, Madame Hannah. Bravo.' "--Boston Globe
"Does Sophie Hannah's Poirot live up to our expectations? Yes, he does, and markedly so.... As tricky as anything written by Agatha Christie. The Monogram Murders has a life and freshness of its own. Poirot is still Poirot. Poirot is back."--Alexander McCall Smith, New York Times bestselling author of The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency
