Silent Night by Sophie Hannah – Part One
We discuss chapters 1-12 of Sophie Hannah‘s latest Hercule Poirot continuation novel, ‘Silent Night’. Officially avoiding our mystery-taxes for the year, we meet Poirot and his friend Edward Catchpool as they settle down for a quiet Christmas together. Unfortunately for them both, a mysterious woman arrives with a case, and it’s straight out of Edward’s nightmares. As his mother insists they travel to a dilapidated old house, Poirot’s interest is piqued by the insinuation that the two men at the core of this supposed mystery are both jolly fellows without an enemy in the world. How could such men befall terrible fates?
