Cat Among the Pigeons

This is a superb book and it’s so easy to read. Murder(s) in a girls’ school leave some of the mistresses dead, but who did it? Well, it turns out that it’s not quite that straighforward and not everyone is who they appear to be, even one of the pupils isn’t who she says she is. Of course, Hercule Poirot has it all under control and everything is explained.

The dialogue drives the story and is so natural, that’s how people talked in those days, and you have to admire the author’s ear for making each individual sound different in such easily distinguished ways.

If you have never read an Agatha Christie book before, this would be a good one to start on as it is effortlessly brilliant from beginning to end whilst being easy to read. What more could you wish for?
