The Next To Die

When it comes to complex plotting, internationally acclaimed Hannah ("Hercule Poirot" mysteries) has few equals.

A Game for All the Family

Hannah (Woman with a Secret) has written what could have been a thriller but is instead an odd combination of the suspenseful (Paula Hawkins's The Girl on the Train) and the satirical (Maria Semple's Where'd You Go, Bernadette??), with an unbelievable story line and characters whose behaviors are overwhelmingly far fetched, leaving readers befuddled.

The Monogram Murders: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery

Almost 40 years after Agatha Christie's final Hercule Poirot mystery, Hannah (The Orphan Choir), with the authorization of the Christie estate, has re-created the sleuth's voice and character as true to the original as anyone could. The egotistical little Belgian, interested in his "order and methods" and employing the "little grey cells" is back. Edward Catchpool is no replacement for the well-intended and captivating Capt. Arthur Hastings, yet fans of all formats of Agatha Christie and Poirot (the BBC TV series as well as original books, plays, etc) will delight in this new foray into the Christie canon. [See Prepub Alert, 3/3/14; see also Hannah's essay on p. 78.]
