Murder on the Links

FullSizeRender (37)

I’m snuggled here in my office, doing my part at keeping my distance from others. I guess I’ve picked a good time to start reading Agatha Christie because it seems there will be plenty of time for at least the next two weeks.

How did everyone enjoy this week’s Poirot mystery? This was the first time I have read Murder on the Links and I really enjoyed it. I have not yet seen the show, but plan on doing so this week.

My first thought was that the story would be about golf, and must admit was thankful that wasn’t the case. I was able to guess the true identity of the victim, but was totally surprised at the conclusion. Towards the end of the book I couldn’t turn the pages fast enough.

Yesterday afternoon I watched a very entertaining show on Amazon Prime about Agatha Christie. The Mystery of Agatha Christie with David SuchetĀ  was fascinating. He took the viewer on a tour of Agatha’s life by interviewing her grandson Matthew, and her biographer Laura Thompson among others. I especially enjoyed the interview with artist Tom Adams who created the covers of many of Christie’s novels.

In one segment David Suchet drives an almost identical car to the one that was found the night Agatha went missing in 1926. He and Laura Thompson park in the location where Christie’s car had been found and discuss the theories of her disappearance. All the information was extremely interesting and I highly recommend this program if you haven’t already seen it.

I am most interested in your thoughts about Murder on the Links and hope you will comment below. Next week’s book is Poirot Investigates.

Enjoy your week and keep yourself and your neighbors healthy by staying home and reading!
