Sophie Hannah's next Agatha Christie novel, 'Closed Casket' cover reveal -- exclusive

Posted on


Agatha Christie may be gone, but she seems to have found a worthy successor in British novelist Sophie Hannah. Hannah first took up Christie’s mantle in 2014 with the clever mystery, The Monogram Murders. Now, she’s back with Closed Casket, a brand new story in which Christie’s Hercule Poirot must put his “little grey cells” to the test once again. Set in the 1930s, Closed Casket finds Poirot and Edward Catchpool at the home of a famous writer, where several guests have gathered at her request.

The book hits shelves Sept. 6, 2016 — and EW is excited to exclusively reveal the U.S. cover for Closed Casket below:
