When a murder is committed, both Catchpool and Poirot pursue their own paths to catch the killer.
These were interesting books to review. What comes next, Poirot in a rom com?
I had major issues with Monogram, not least with Catchpole — what sort of necrophobe would choose to be a policeman? Closed Casket, I thought, was a deliberate effort to answer those issues, although Catchpole was reduced to a simple narrator. His issues were gone, but nothing was replaced, leaving him a cipher. Like Liked by 1 person. I remember seeing Cat Among the Pigeons and the murderer had been changed — ridiculous.
I enjoyed these two from Hannah, not least because she introduced new characters. Like Like.

Hi Kathy — I enjoyed the Lagercrantz too which I think made me more open to other continuation novels. And I agree with you that the best stories come when authors find and use their own voices i. Apart from the ringing of cash registers…. These, especially Monogram, are basically Sophie Hannah style novels that happens to have someone called Poirot in it who vaguely resembles the Christie character.
In terms of plot structure, this can hardly be what the people who demanded a new Poirot novel, whoever they were, were expecting. Closed Casket is closed, but still some way off…. I read The Monogram Murders and give 3 out of five. I understand about her having her own ideas about HP and will hold my judgment about Closed Casket because I am still halfway the book.
