THIS WEEK

Get a sneak peek at the new Hercule Poirot mystery Closed Casket!
With interview and introduction by
Sophie Hannah

When Agatha Christie's Estate chose bestselling author Sophie Hannah to write the next Hercule Poirot mystery, Sophie realized that she'd always had a very Christie-ish mystery in mind, one that would be perfect for Poirot and his little grey cells. Sophie joins us for a chat about high expectations, calm bravery, and the brilliantly simple murder motive in her upcoming Hercule Poirot mystery Closed Casket. We're keeping mum on the motive, but stay tuned after the interview to listen to the first chapter of Closed Casket.

Part 8

It’s already the final episode of our free 8-part serialization of Agatha Christie’s After the Funeral! We’ve met some suggestible nuns, narrowly avoided death by wedding cake, and learned that somebody’s nose twitches when they lie. If you’re still not sure who’s the wiliest of this wily bunch, you aren’t alone… even Poirot needs a mysterious telegram to bring this bizarre motive to the surface.

Part 7

A closer look into the mirror reveals something most unexpected in the penultimate episode of our free 8-part serialization of Agatha Christie’s After the Funeral.

Poirot pays special attention to a bouquet of wax flowers just as the Abernethie family starts to pay special attention to Poirot. Cats are leaping right out of the bag in episode 6 of our free 8-part serialization of Agatha Christie’s After the Funeral.

Along the way, Sophie sells us on the crucial distinction between the truly impossible and the deeply unlikely, points out the magic of a very personal motive, and explains her belief that “the best stories are the ones that would only ever happen once.” After our chat, Sophie kicks off the free 8-part serialization of her favorite Hercule Poirot mystery: After the Funeral.
