Introducing the book murder after hour by Agatha Christie
Hercule Poirot is the most famous detective in history, more famous than Magra, Sherlock Holmes or Mrs. Marple. The English writer Agatha Christie inspired this character from a short Belgian refugee she had seen in England, making him one of the most important characters in her stories. An intelligent man with an extraordinary mind that sees the most details and excites the audience with his abilities. Christie sent Poirot around the world for years to uncover the secret of the various murders. This time, too, in Poirot’s Holiday Murder, he goes to another enigmatic struggle.

The author later changed the title of this book to “murder after hours” and in Iran we know it as “murder on vacation”. The holiday murder story also takes place in the presence of Detective Poirot, but according to Ms. Christie, Poirot’s presence in the story was wrong and actually ruined it. Agatha Christie has repeatedly spoken out about not being interested in Poirot since the late 1930s and sometimes forcing him to use her in her stories.

The story of the murder book on vacation is the story of a man named John who intends to go on vacation with his wife with his friends. Before the holidays, he asks his 5-year-old daughter to cast a fortune for him, and the girl pulls out a death card. Although no one pays attention to this, John faces death during this holiday. A death that finally opens Poirot to the story.
