The Monogram Murders by Sophie Hannah

I fought reading this book for a while, until I was able to get this from Amazon for a 1¢ (plus shipping, of course).

When “Agatha Christie” appears on the cover larger than the name of the novel and the actual author is tucked down at the bottom, it is not a good sign.

It was overwritten, overthought, overplotted, and shouldn’t have been thought of. Qui bono? The Christie estate? I just wonder whose idea it was. Was this publication timed to coincide with the end of the PBS/BBC series?

Catchpool is thicker than Captain Hastings.

C’est la vie, say the old folks. It goes to show you never can tell, but sometimes you can.
