The Murder on the Links – Agatha Christie
Back cover: An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course.
But why is the dead man wearing an overcoat that is too big for him? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by their discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse…
First published: 1923
Thoughts: This was a rather sweet one. Captain Hastings falls hopelessly in love in this book. I was right with some mysteries, so close to the actual murder!
