New Poirot cover revealed


If you could all gather in the dining room, we have a rather special reveal we would hate for you to miss.

After a 39 year absence, Hercule Poirot has returned to solve a new mystery. Written by international best seller Sophie Hannah, The Monogram Murders sees the beloved Belgian detective call upon all his skills to tackle a diabolically clever puzzle - and today we get to share the novel's gorgeous new cover:

A young woman fears for her life, while three guests at a fashionable London hotel have been murdered - a cufflink placed in each one’s mouth. What connects the victims? Is the young woman at risk? And can Poirot identify the murderer before he claims a fourth victim?

The first ever Agatha Christie continuation novel, The Monogram Murders will be published on 8 September, arriving on the bookshelves of over 50 territories in 29 languages.

For a flavour of things to come, watch the cover reveal video below.
