Murder on the Links, The

MYSTERY. Adapted from the novel by Agatha Christie. Famed Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and his friend Captain Arthur Hastings travel to France to meet with Paul Renauld, who has urgently requested Poirot’s assistance. Upon arriving, Poirot and Hastings discover they are too late: Renauld was stabbed in the back that morning and left in a newly dug grave at the edge of a golf course. Renauld’s wife claims that two masked men broke into their villa in the middle of the night, tied her up, demanded to know “the secret,” and then kidnapped her husband. Why did the servants hear nothing, and why was the body found where it would be quickly discovered? Meanwhile, Hastings meets a young woman, known to him as “Cinderella,” who asks to see the crime scene and then mysteriously disappears with the murder weapon. To solve the murder, Poirot must pit his wits against an arrogant, sneering French detective. An enthralling, ingenious whodunit complete with blackmail, hidden identities, plot twists, and even some romance.
