|Series:||New Hercule Poirot Mysteries Ser.|
'Sparkling second outing for Hannah's reimagined Poirot. The setting (posh Irish country house), the characters (country lawyers, creepy male secretary, stroppy flapper, etc) and the period vocabulary are all spot on, but it's the utter fiendish unpredictability of the plot that makes Sophie the new Agatha.' Sunday Times 'Top-class entertainment' Woman & Home 'Closed Casket is deviously plotted, deeply satisfying and does the grande dame of crime proud'. Good Housekeeping 'Christie's boots as a crime writer are hard to fill, but Hannah achieves it quietly and intelligently with Poirot-sized steps once again in Closed Casket... The whole book will not only delight Agatha Christie devotees but anyone who loves a good, well written murder mystery' Devon Life
