Summary (modified from Goodreads):
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. InMurder on the Links, Poirot attempts to unravel the grisly conundrum of not one, but two dead bodies discovered on a French golf course.
The Murder on the Links is Agatha Christie’s second book in her Hercule Poirot series and it was just as good as the first one.
We follow Poirot and his assistant Hastings as they receive an urgent letter from a potential client. They fly out to meet the client immediately, but by the time they get there, it’s already too late. As they try to solve that case, another body shows up in connection with the first.
This is a fun read with a lot of twists and turns. I adore the characters, especially Poirot because he is a classic detective. He has a sharp wit, though he is rarely stumped.
My only problem still was reading the language. Though I’m sure I’ll get used to it the more I read her books.
This was another interesting read by Agatha Christie in a different setting with a fun outcome of the mystery.
The Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie gets 4 out of 5 stars.
“Two people rarely see the same thing.” –Agatha Christie, The Murder on the Links
