Poirot searches out a murder on a French golf course in a stylish new comic book adaptation. An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a golf course. But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter in the pocket for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse! Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie's books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories -- full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world's most popular and exciting mysteries.

3.0 Hercule Poirot #2

This book was so boring over the first third I thought I might have to kill myself. Then it improved somewhat, only to go to hell over the last 15% or so. The 3* rating should have a - [minus] appended. So, it's a Poirot story as told by Capt. Hastings. It seems that a very rich man, M. Renauld, is ...

This was an interesting story but Hastings really proved himself to be a huge boob. I cannot believe he didn't get run out of the place. It wasn't until near the end that I was sure who the murderer was. Does Poirot really keep him around after this story? I am sure he is in the whole series but...

3.0 Murder on the Links
Meh. But probably 'meh' because I listened to the BBC Audio full cast dramatisation and it wasn't as well scripted, or whatever it is they do, than the last one, Crooked House. It was shorter, but somehow much more scattered, less cohesive. What I can say that applies to any edition of this book...
