The ABC Murders by Agatha Christie
(*)(*)(*)(*)( )(1,876)
Agatha Christie's world-famous serial killer mystery, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers. There's a serial killer on the loose, bent on working his way through the alphabet.

A book that departs a little from the usual ones of the Queen of Mistery, in various aspects, and for this reason it intrigued me a lot. Nevertheless this book, in the end, still contains the basic elements that I love so much and that I appreciate, if I have to be honest, for their familiarity, too. For example Poirot's deductive work, Hastings' mistakes, the arrogance of the policeman on duty, various clues cleverly disseminated. A really good reading to end pleasantly the year!
