I just finished reading the latest Sophie Hannah Poirot mystery, THE KILLINGS AT KINGFISHER HILL. While there were plenty of twists, I didn't like this book nearly as much as I liked the previous Sophie Hannah/Poirot books.

I was struck by one line in that book: "A motive can be true even if one has not acted upon it." I thought that was pretty memorable.

I'm glad I read this, even though I preferred the earlier books in this series.

I don't know that this would be one I would want to read myself. I've only read one Agatha Christie book and while it was OK, it didn't make me want to run out and read the rest of her works. I might try some down the line but whether it was her actual work or something Hannah has written, I wouldn't be able to say at this point.

For Poirot fans, the Sophie Hannah oeuvre is much better than I expected. If you're not a big Agatha fan already, though, you might give this one a pass.

I think that one is my favorite of the "faux Poirots."

Out of curiosity, do you remember which Agatha Christie book you read, the one that didn't grip you?
