Hercule Poirot's quiet supper in a London coffee house is interrupted when a young woman confides to him that she is about to be murdered. She is terrified, but begs Poirot not to find and punish her killer. Once she is dead, she insists, justice will have been done. Later that night, Poirot learns that three guests at a fashionable London hotel have been murdered, and a cufflink has been placed in each one's mouth. Could there be a connection with the frightened woman?

What would have made The Monogram Murders better?

Perhaps if the reader was not treated as a complete imbecile.

Has The Monogram Murders put you off other books in this genre?

I will not purchase any further books by this author.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Julian Rhind-Tutt?

The narrator was great.

What character would you cut from The Monogram Murders?

In this book both Hercule Poirot & Catchpole

Any additional comments?

Very disappointing novel
