Let's get together as a community and support each other as friends, and talk about the Murder Mystery novels we enjoy! We normally meet on the third Wednesday evening every month, but due to that day's close proximity to the Christmas period, we will meet on the second Wednesday (December 14th) on this occasion. Tonight, we'll be talking about Hercule Poirot's Christmas by Agatha Christie.
The wealthy Simeon Lee has demanded that all four of his sons and their wives return home for Christmas. But a heartwarming family holiday is not what he has in mind. He bedevils each of his sons with barbed insults and finally announces that he is cutting off their allowances and changing his will.
So when he is found lying in a pool of blood on Christmas Eve, there is no lack of suspects. Did his taunts push one of the boys to a desperate act? And how did the murderer escape from the locked room? Intrepid Belgian detective Hercule Poirot suspends his own holiday festivities to sift through the motives and evidence surrounding the crime.
