A Murder on the Links
I just LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this mystery novel starring Hercule Poirot and his close friend Arthur Hastings. The novel, I believe, is narrated by Hastings, the same narrator introduced in Poirot's first novel, The Mysterious Affair At Styles.
I usually find Christie's Miss Marple novels to be more delightful, more charming, more satisfying than those starring Hercule Poirot. But this one is definitely an exception. I just loved it from cover to cover.
This mystery, for the most part, occurs in France. And it just works really, really well. I don't want to say too much about the mystery itself. I mean the less you know the better...but you really should give Agatha Christie a try!

I really must read some Agatha Christie...
Becky, I loved it, too! And I am a big fan of Poirot! If you'd like to see what I wrote, it is here:
Oh, I just started reading Christie, recently. I'm living the cover on this one.
I love Poirot! I even like the old Poirot reruns that play sometimes on PBS!
I love this book! I've also started an Agatha Christie page on my blog and this one is definitely on my next to re-read list :)
