內容簡介



「我要說的事一定會讓你大為震驚...」

比利時名偵探─赫丘勒‧白羅回來了!再度「動動他的灰色腦細胞」,企圖解開另一樁高明懸疑的謀殺之謎。

艾瑟琳達‧普雷佛德夫人計劃,在位於科克郡的自家豪宅舉辦一場家庭宴會,但這可不是一場普通的聚會。
正當賓客陸續抵達之際,普雷佛德夫人傳喚她的律師,緊急變更了她的遺囑─她打算在當天晚餐時宣布這項重大消息。她決定一毛錢都不留給自己的兩個孩子,並把她的財富留給某個只剩下幾星期壽命的人… 

普雷佛德夫人的賓客裡,包括兩名她從未見過的男子─比利時名偵探赫丘勒‧白羅,與蘇格蘭警場的督察愛德華‧凱契普,他們兩人都不明白為何自己會受邀前來;直到白羅起疑,普雷佛德夫人是否預期到,當晚會發生一樁翻天覆地的謀殺案?但她為又何如此執意要逼迫兇手現身?
儘管白羅盡了最大的努力想阻止犯罪,兇案還是發生了,而且受害者並不是他原先設想的對象,他能否找出罪魁禍首,並成功解開這場驚天之謎? 

2014年九月,國際暢銷犯罪作家蘇菲‧漢娜(Sophie Hannah)接受阿嘉莎‧克莉絲蒂有限公司(Agatha Christie Limited)的授權委託,推出首本名偵探赫丘勒‧白羅系列新作“The Monogram Murders”,旋即暢銷全球並獲得廣大好評。
而今雙方再度攜手合作,推出第二本名偵探白羅系列新作“Closed Casket: The New Hercule Poirot Mystery”。舉世聞名的比利時名偵探白羅,一個世紀前在克莉絲蒂的小說“The Mysterious Affair at Styles”中首度登場,也讓這本新書成為名偵探白羅這個角色誕生的百年紀念,意義非凡。

Hercule Poirot returns in another brilliant murder mystery that can only be solved by the eponymous Belgian detective and his ‘little grey cells’.

‘What I intend to say to you will come as a shock . . .’

Lady Athelinda Playford has planned a house party at her mansion in Clonakilty, County Cork, but it is no ordinary gathering. As guests arrive, Lady Playford summons her lawyer to make an urgent change to her will – one she intends to announce at dinner that night. She has decided to cut off her two children without a penny and leave her fortune to someone who has only weeks to live . . .

Among Lady Playford’s guests are two men she has never met – the famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, and Inspector Edward Catchpool of Scotland Yard. Neither knows why he has been invited . . . until Poirot starts to wonder if Lady Playford expects a murderer to strike. But why does she seem so determined to provoke, in the presence of a possible killer?

When the crime is committed in spite of Poirot’s best efforts to stop it, and the victim is not who he expected it to be, will he be able to find the culprit and solve the mystery?

Following the phenomenal global success of The Monogram Murders, which was published to critical acclaim following a co-ordinated international launch in September 2014, international best-selling crime writer Sophie Hannah has been commissioned by Agatha Christie Limited to pen a second fully-authorised Poirot novel. The new book marks the centenary of the creation of Christie’s world-famous detective Hercule Poirot, introduced in her first book The Mysterious Affair at Styles.
