Cat among the pigeons by Agatha Christie

Cat among the pigeons by Agatha Christie is a murder mystery solved by Poirot. I am not keen on this series and this book was not to my liking. I only gave it 3 stars.

The unpopular games mistress was shot through the heart from point-blank range. The girls school is thrown into chaos when the ‘cat’ strikes again. This is the plot. Well, the book took 100 pages to get to the first murder. There were some letters, in full, before that. I found it a bit boring and rather slow.

I will not say any more to avoid spoilers, but I am not going to read any more of her books from this series with Poirot.

About the author: Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, as the youngest of three. 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. During the First World War, she worked at a hospital as a nurse; later working at a hospital pharmacy, a job that influenced her work, as many of the murders in her books are carried out with poison. 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.
Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, came out in 1920. During her first marriage, Agatha published six novels, a collection of short stories, and a number of short stories in magazines. In 1930, Christie married archaeologist Max Mallowan (Sir Max from 1968) after joining him in an archaeological dig. Their marriage was especially happy in the early years and remained so until Christie’s death in 1976.
