Bored with her stodgy old book club, Alicia Finlay decides to start a new one-dedicated to her favourite crime writer Agatha Christie. And so she gathers seven quirky members together, including dashing Dr Anders, a poisons expert, socialite Barbara Parlour, librarian Missy (as ditzy as Miss Marple and just as sharp) and fashionistas Claire and Perry who both bear an eerie resemblance to Hercule Poirot. As the new club sip cups of Darjeeling and happily dissect Evil Under the Sun, little do they know they're about to stumble upon a real-life mystery of their own. Barbara suddenly vanishes and her husband seems oddly unperturbed. When he shows up murdered soon after, the group decide to do as the meddling Miss Marple would do, and investigate. So begins a real-life mystery adventure for the Agatha Christie Book Club (ACBC), a motley collection of amateur sleuths who use Christie as their guide. Following in the footsteps of Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, the group must sort the clues from the red herrings to solve the murder of Arthur Parlour and the mystery of his missing wife. In this fun, fast-paced adventure, C.A. Larmer shows us, yet again, why she's one of the best-selling contemporary cozy crime writers out there today.
