For the first time ever, the guardians of Agatha Christie’s legacy have approved a brand-new novel featuring her most beloved creation, Hercule Poirot.
“Equal parts charming and ingenious, dark and quirky and utterly engaging….I was thrilled to see Poirot in such very, very good hands. Reading The Monogram Murders was like returning to a favorite room of a long-lost home.” —Gillian Flynn, author of Gone Girl
It is a rare, sweet thing to find an author you adore and then discover how very prolific they’ve been. Adrian McKinty has written fourteen books, and The Sun is God is his newest, and perhaps his biggest departure. Set on a far-flung island in New Guinea in 1906, the site of a nudist colony who worships the sun, The Sun is God promises to be the kind of cracking historical crime novel that only McKinty can deliver. I can’t wait!
I’m a bit addicted to Europa’s World Noir series. I Will Have Vengeance is the first book in a quartet starring Commissario Ricciardi, a detective known for his aloof attitude and high solve rate. His secret? He sees the ghosts of victims, acting out their final moments in an endless, macabre loop. I Will Have Vengeance is a satisfying and intelligent summer read.
