“Sophie Hannah’s third “New Hercule Poirot Mystery” proves to be most satisfying … faithful to its model in the essentials but flexible enough to allow for an animated plot and protagonist.” - Washington Post 

“Another ingeniously deceptive puzzle…. The gratifying reveal is a neat variation on one of Christie’s own solutions and demonstrates Hannah’s facility at combining her own plotting gifts with another author’s creation.” - Publishers Weekly

“[Hannah] supplies boundless ingenuity... adding a divinely inspired denouement.”  - Kirkus 

“It’s safe to say Agatha Christie fans will rejoice that Poirot has returned, keener than ever to solve the case.” - San Francisco Book Review

"a stylish mystery" - i Newspaper

"an irresistible read" - Prima Magazine

The Mystery of Three Quarters follows Poirot as he is approached by four strangers, each claiming he has sent them a letter accusing them of murdering a man he has never even heard of.
