About the Book

The cover of "The ABC Murders" has bullet holes and blood stains.

One of the leading writers of the Golden Age of detective fiction, Agatha Christie became known as the “Queen of Crime” and received a knighthood for her contributions to literature. She published over fifty novels in her lifetime and various short stories.

The ABC Murders (1936) is her 13th novel featuring the Belgian private detective Hercule Poirot in solving a serial murder case. He is accompanied by his friend named Captain Hastings. The story starts when Poirot shows a letter from the murderer to Hastings. The killer challenges Poirot to stop him.

About the Mystery Book & Video Club

Since 2013, the Mystery book & video club has met monthly with the exception of June and July. The books discussed are primarily mystery novels. Some memorable authors explored have included Agatha Christie, Lee Child, Louise Penny and Ruth Rendell.

Books are selected based on geographic or historical interest, such as works by author Donna Leon whose crime novels are set in Venice, Italy and Peter Tremayne, Celtic scholar and historian whose focus is 7th century Ireland. We have had new authors discuss their writings including Paul Paradise, who writes about murder, trademark counterfeiting, and product piracy and Radha Vatsal, award winning mystery writer whose books center around a young female reporter in New York City during the 1910’s.
