Abc murders by agatha by Agatha Christie

The ABC Murders is a detective novel by Agatha Christie in which Hercule Poirot is challenged by a murderer.

Summary of the Book

Hercule Poirot is one of the best private detectives one can find. Indeed, his fame seems to have outrun his luck when he receives a rather curious and disturbing letter in the mail. The letter is neatly typed, signed as ABC and challenges Poirot to a contest of wits. It mentions Andover and gives Poirot a date, claiming that a murder is going to take place. Colonel Arthur Hastings, Poirot’s close friend and confidante, brushes this off as the ravings of a madman but Poirot knows better. And surely enough, Alice Ascher is murdered in her shop at Andover. ABC moves methodically and then sends Poirot another letter. This time he lists Bexhill, and like clockwork, the body of Betty Barnard is found lifeless on the mentioned date. The third letter is what unnerves Poirot the most, for the hitherto meticulous murderer has made a mistake. He has misspelled Poirot’s name, and that is a clue in itself for Poirot’s grey cells. Can Poirot catch the ABC murderer in time before he kills right through the entire alphabet or has the little Belgian detective finally found his match?
