Agatha Christie Read-Along to mark an upcoming Hercule Poirot mystery

Book Club Girl is organizing an Agatha Christie Read-Along to mark the release of a new Hercule Poirot mystery, The Monogram Murders written by best selling author Sophie Hannah.  

The Monogram Murders: A Hercule Poirot Mystery by Sophie Hannah
The blurb:
‘I’m a dead woman, or I shall be soon…’
Hercule Poirot's quiet supper in a London coffeehouse is interrupted when a young woman confides to him that she is about to be murdered.  She is terrified – but begs Poirot not to find and punish her killer. Once she is dead, she insists, justice will have been done.
Later that night, Poirot learns that three guests at a fashionable London Hotel have been murdered, and a cufflink has been placed in each one’s mouth. Could there be a connection with the frightened woman? While Poirot struggles to put together the bizarre pieces of the puzzle, the murderer prepares another hotel bedroom for a fourth victim...
