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?

I was born in Leicester. I attended school in Yorkshire and University in Liverpool. I have been to 93 countries and territories including The Balkans and Armenia in 2015, France and Slovakia in 2016, and some of the Greek Islands in 2017. My sense of humour is distilled from The Goons, Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Midsomer Murders. I love being creative in my writing and I love writing about travelling. My next books are a travel book about Greece and a novel inspired by Brexit.
