We all know that Hercule Poirot is a Belgian detective created by Agatha Christie. He appeared in 33 novels, one play and more than 50 short stories published between 1920 and 1975. We last read about him in Curtain: Poirot’s Last Case, a novel first published in UK by the Collins Crime Club in September 1975.

Poirot recently made a literary comeback when Sophie Hannah came out with The Monogram Murders, a novel featuring Hercule poirot. The novel was published in 2014 and this was the first time since 1975 when we saw Hercule Poirot once again. While many writers tried, it was Sophie Hannah who became the first author approved by Agatha Christie’s family members to write a novel featuring Poirot and continue her legacy. The Monogram Murders has been appreciated well by the ardent Christie fans.

After the success of The Monogram Murders, Hannah is planning to come out with another novel featuring Hercule Poirot. According to a piece of news published in Times of India (TOI) dated 7th April 2015, Hennah told TOI that Agatha Christie traveled extensively around the world including India and she doesn’t see why we can’t have Poirot visiting India to crack a case. Similar views are also expressed by Christie’s grandson Mathew Prichard.

It is really good news for all Agatha Christie fans. I am especially delighted and thought to share this news with all of you. It will be fun to read Poirot pursuing murderers in the busy roads of India. Let’s see whether it happens or not.

    • It cannot be a classic Agatha Christie because nobody can replace ‘the Mystery Queen’. I have not read The Monogram Murders so far but do hope to read it in future soon. For me, the important thing is the backdrop of the next story, which is going to be India. This is the main reason of my excitement.
