Hercule Poirot’s Silent Night

The Christmas details are light, memorably centering on Catchpool decorating multiple trees while simultaneously interviewing suspects, but the case is heavy and offers much to consider. Fans will devour this novel, but it is also a nice place to jump into Hannah’s series.

The Killings at Kingfisher Hill

Hannah follows The Mystery of Three Quarters with a drawn-out story. Only Poirot’s fans and the author’s readers will appreciate this intricate, slow-moving book.

The Next To Die

When it comes to complex plotting, internationally acclaimed Hannah ("Hercule Poirot" mysteries) has few equals. Her trademark slow build, as she introduces characters and the threads of their lives, may cause some readers to struggle, but those who stick with it will find the adventure well worthwhile.

The Mystery of Three Quarters: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery

Enthusiastically recommended for fans of Hannah's other Poirot novels and detective fiction and Christie's original works. [See Prepub Alert, 2/19/18.]

Keep Her Safe

A rare miss from this best-selling author. [See Prepub Alert, 3/13/17.]

Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery

Detective fiction readers and followers of Dame Christie should still give this title a try, as Hannah is a wonderful suspense writer. [See Prepub Alert, 3/21/16.]

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.

Woman with a Secret

Readers who follow the author's police procedural series will clamor for this one, and anybody who enjoyed Hannah's Agatha Christie estate-sanctioned Hercule Poirot mystery, The Monogram Murders, may want to take a gamble. However, readers looking for complex, relatable characters and/or a believable plot will be disappointed. [See Prepub Alert, 3/2/15.]

The Carrier

Readers new to the series will be lost, but those familiar with the players might be happier. [See Prepub Alert, 7/28/14.]
