Book Review: The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie

The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie

Genre: Mystery

Page Count: 224 pages

Publication Date: November 1962


Goodreads Summary:

There’s a serial killer on the loose. His macabre calling card? To leave the ABC Railway Guide beside each victim’s body.

Hercule Poirot is intrigued by this murderer’s mind. Something just doesn’t ring true about a psychopath who lays his clues so carefully.


My Thoughts:

Agatha Christie does it again! Her charming Belgium detective solved yet another mystery by using his “little grey cells”.

In The ABC Murders you’re taken on a tour around the English countryside in search of a serial killer (I’m not sure how many murders you have to commit in order to be classed as a serial killer, but just go with it, alright? Thanks).

The outcome of the investigation isn’t as ingenious as some of Agatha’s other books (hence the 4/5 score), but it’s still very much worth a read! The way little clues are left throughout the story is so subtle that you may not even notice they’re actual clues.

If you’re ever after a mystery quick-read then I would DEFINITELY advise you to pick up any one of Agatha Christie’s masterpieces.
