  1. Another holiday-themed mystery on sale, but possibly not the holiday you’re thinking of!

    Hallowe’en Party is pretty near the end of Agatha Christie’s Hercule Poirot series. It seems to go on sale pretty much every October, although usually a little earlier in the month – Oct 29 is leaving it a little bit late IMO… It has dropped to $1.99 at Kindle and Kobo US.

  2. One of Christie’s best known titles, Death on the Nile, is £0.99 at Kindle UK today, as part of the Daily Deal. This is a movie tie-in, with the cover looking just like the billboards I’ve seen for the upcoming movie. (I’m usually not much on movies made from books I liked, but I did like the 1970s movie version, starring Peter Ustinov. I’ll have to see about this one, which is directed by Kenneth Branagh.)

    In any case, here’s the link for the book: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0046RE5HW/

  3. Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? is a non-series titles that is one of my favorite Agatha Christie books. (Actually, several of her non-series books are among my favorites of all her books…)

    I especially like the interplay between Bobby and Frankie as they figure out what’s going on, while dealing with various mildly disapproving parental figures. It kind of reminds me of some of Heinlein’s “juveniles”, which are still great fun for adults to read too. In any case, Evans has dropped to £0.99 at Kindle UK as part of today’s Daily Deal.

  4. Two Agatha Christie titles have dropped to $1.99 in the US.

    Also note that The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (Hercule Poirot #4) entered the public domain in the US on Jan 1 of this year (pubbed in 1926, see CrimeReads article here), so you can now find it at some public domain sites, like Internet Archive, although some, like Project Gutenberg, don’t seem to have any version uploaded yet.

  5. Two Agatha Christie books are on sale for $1.99 today as part of the US Kindle Daily Deal, matched at Kobo US: Nemesis (Miss Marple) and Peril at End House (Hercule Poirot). Nemesis is one of my favorite Miss Marple books, and I even like the BBC TV/movie version (with Joan Hickson), which is kind of unusual for me. It’s a sort of follow-on from the earlier A Caribbean Mystery, with some of the same characters.

  6. 4.50 from Paddington (or as we’d do it in the US, 4:50 from Paddington) is the eighth Miss Marple mystery, and one of my favorites. It’s £0.99 right now at Kindle UK: https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0046RE5EU

    Oh yeah, and it’s also been published under two totally different titles: What Mrs. McGillicuddy Saw! and Murder She Said
