World Book Night: After the funeral

Grab your free copy on Wednesday 23rd April, from 10am in the StartUpLounge

The master of a Victorian mansion dies suddenly – and his sister is convinced it was murder….

When Cora is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richard’s funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance.

At the reading of Richard’s will, Cora was clearly heard to say: ‘It’s been hushed up very nicely, hasn’t it…But he was murdered, wasn’t he?’

In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.

Review: Agatha Christie is the greatest crime writer ever to have lived and Hercule Poirot her greatest creation. From its atmospheric start to its satisfyingly solved conclusion, After the Funeral will delight all fans of Poirot on TV as well as fans of Downton Abbey with its upstairs downstairs melodrama.
