Agatha Christie estate authorizes new Poirot book.

From the CBC:

Agatha Christie's most beloved character, Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, is being called upon once more to solve a mystery in a new novel, the first one authorized by the Christie estate since the legendary author's death.

The Poirot torch will be passed on to bestselling British crime writer Sophie Hannah, who has written several novels including the popular Waterhouse and Zailer series.

Set in 1920s London, Hannah's The Monogram Murders sees Poirot trying to solve a series of hotel guest murders. In a recent interview, Hannah said she intends not to mimic Christie's writing style, but to pay homage to his iconic character.

As usual, I'm with Tina Belcher on this one:

In other words, I don't want to read it, I don't think I should read it, but know I'm going to end up reading it.

(And don't worry, I'm not going to get all GIF happy on you. I just love Tina. A lot.)
