Hercule Poirot rushes to France in response to an urgent and cryptic plea from a client, but the Belgian detective arrives just too late. He had been stabbed multiple times with a letter opener and left in a freshly dug grave. The victim lay face down in a grave located within a golf course. He was wearing his son’s overcoat and a love letter within. His wife had reported that masked men had abducted him from their home in the dead of the night. The mystery thickens when another corpse is found, stabbed with the same weapon, in the same way. While the local authorities pursue the false leads suggested by the evidence, Poirot fights to unravel the mystery behind The Murder on the Links. He relies instead upon his famous 'little grey cells' to cut through the confusion and untangle a story of blackmail, forbidden love and a long-buried secret.

When Poirot arrives in France, following an urgent appeal for help, he finds he is too late. His client, a South American millionaire, has been stabbed to death and his body flung into a freshly dug open grave on the golf course adjoining the property. Meanwhile the millionaire's wife is found bound and gagged in her room. Her wrists are badly cut and she seems to be in shock, but she agrees to speak to Poirot. She tells him that they were attacked by thugs who tied her up and forced her husband to leave the house, dressed only in his underwear, before brutally killing him. Poirot is not sure whether to believe her story. Did she, as the sole beneficiary of her millionaire husband's estate, set the whole thing up? And if not, who did kill M. Renauld? The suspects include the mysterious Dulcie Duveen and Renauld's son Jack, who had quarrelled violenty with his father. As Poirot investigates, the mystery begins to unfold - but not before another murder occurs... John Moffatt stars as Poirot, with Jeremy Clyde as Captain Hastings, Madeline Smith as Dulcie Duveen and Stephen Tompkinson as Jack.

About Author: Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (née Miller; 15 September 1890 - 12 January 1976) was an English writer. She is known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, particularly those revolving around her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Christie also wrote the world's longest-running play, a murder mystery, The Mousetrap, and, under the pen name Mary Westmacott, six romances. In 1971 she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her contribution to literature.Christie was born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon. Before marrying and starting a family in London, she had served in a Devon hospital during the First World War, tending to troops coming back from the trenches. She was initially an unsuccessful writer with six consecutive rejections, but this changed when The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring Hercule Poirot, was published in 1920. During the Second World War, she worked as a pharmacy assistant at University College Hospital, London, acquiring a good knowledge of poisons which feature in many of her novels.Guinness World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books, behind only Shakespeare's works and the Bible. According to Index Translation um, she remains the most-translated individual author, having been translated into at least 103 languages. And Then There Were None is Christie's best-selling novel, with 100 million sales to date, making it the world's best-selling mystery ever, and one of the best-selling books of all time.Christie's stage play The Mousetrap holds the world record for longest initial run. It opened at the Ambassadors Theatre in the West End on 25 November 1952, and as of April 2019 is still running after more than 27,000 performances.In 1955, Christie was the first recipient of the Mystery Writers of America's highest honour, the Grand Master Award. Later the same year, Witness for the Prosecution received an Edgar Award by the MWA for Best Play. In 2013, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was voted the best crime novel ever by 600 fellow writers of the Crime Writers' Association.n 15 September 2015, coinciding with her 125th birthday, And Then There Were None was named the "World's Favourite Christie" in a vote sponsored by the author's estate. Most of her books and short stories have been adapted for television, radio, video games and comics, and more than thirty feature films have been based on her work. Source: Wikipediaproduct description: The Murder on the Links is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie, first published in the US by Dodd, Mead & Co in the same year and in the UK by The Bodley Head in May 1923. It features Hercule Poirot and Arthur Hastings. The UK edition retailed at seven shillings and sixpence.The story takes place in northern France, giving Poirot a hostile competitor from the Paris Sûreté. Poirot's long memory for past or similar crimes proves useful in resolving the crimes. The book is notable for a subplot in which Hastings falls in love, a development "greatly desired on Agatha's part... parceling off Hastings to wedded bliss in the Argentine."Reviews when it was published compared Mrs Christie favorably to Arthur Conan Doyle in his Sherlock Holmes mysteries. Remarking on Poirot, still a new character, one reviewer said he was "a pleasant contrast to most of his lurid competitors; and one even suspects a touch of satire in him." Source Wikipedia

At the Augusta National Golf Course, home of the Masters, the spring grass is green and the world's most famous golfers are gathered. It looks as if it's going to be another splendid tournament. Until Melvin Newton's body is found in Eisenhower Pond, the apparent victim of a suicide. But what looks like suicide to most, looks like murder to John Morris, a retired AP sportswriter, and his spirited, sexy friend Julia Sullivan. Newton, a wealthy businessman and elite member of the club, is the type of man to be killed, not the type to kill himself, Morris reflects. He was a man with many enemies and few friends. But the list of suspects is enormous enough for Morris to include himself. Who didn't wish this man dead? Play at the tournament progresses as does Morris's search for a killer. Then, after another inexplicable tragedy, Morris and Sullivan begin to whittle away at the possible suspects. Together, they creep around the course looking for clues and searching their memories when the trail seems to lead to an old enemy who may just turn out to be an old friend. Set against the background of the famous and toney tournament, John Logue crafts a wonderfully inventive mystery, full of rich characters, good golf, and enough plot twists to astonish. Originally published in paperback by Dell, this digital republication is an authorized and unabridged edition, presented expertly in ebook formats by Quid Pro Books. It includes active Contents, close proofreading from the original, and proper formatting, unlike many such digital reprints.
