Two of our favorite characters, Sherlock Holmes (aka Poirot) and Dr. Watson (aka Hastings) gives an accounting of their latest adventure in this book
The Holy Ghost Writer takes our inquiring minds to the middle of the British upper crust for this latest adventure. Holmes (Watson) is invited to Styles by John Cavendish to relax before returning to the front cured of his injuries.
This is the story of the events that occurred while Holmes (Watson) was there at Styles and what happened. Obviously a death will occur, the method must be figured out, the fingers can point every which way, Poirot deduces and solves the very complicated mystery and Agatha Christie has the publishing opportunity with this story, to begin her new found career as a mystery writer.
Two reasons why I'm very happy to be doing this review are first of all the writer of this treatment, The Holy Ghost Writer, has become one of my favorite writers of many genres. The Holy Ghost is a very talented writer and historical literature expert.
The second reason is that one of my dearest friends died last year and I remember arguing way into the night with her about why Agatha Christie was not the best mystery writer that ever lived. She remained unmoved, I remained bruised from hitting her brick wall of a head.
This book hits on so many levels, there are few readers who will walk away untouched by this fun book. As for me, I'm off to find a tweed skirt and sensible shoes.
