Inspiration for the major motion picture A Haunting in Venice, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh, coming September 2023!
When a Halloween Party turns deadly, it falls to Hercule Poirots to unmask a murderer in Agatha Christie’s classic murder mystery, Hallowe’en Party.
At a Halloween party, Joyce—a hostile thirteen-year-old—boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub.
That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the `evil presence'. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer...
Good but sad- Spoiler
I figured this one out. It was funny to see the author as a character. But …spoiler alert- I didn’t like reading about a child’s death. Some books haunt you afterwards and this one did because of that.
The Halloween Party
I had forgotten how much fun it is to read the Poirot series. After watching the beloved tv series, it’s fun to go back and read these books. Certain characters are so much more alive.
One of the best in Christine’s books
It’s not frightening, but freaking. A slaughterer with a special instinct. Recommended for bold readers, and don’t read it at night.
