Teaser Tuesday 335: Hallowe'en Party

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by Jenn of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current book or recent read.
* Share a few "teaser" sentences from somewhere in the book.
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away. You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author so that other participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teaser!

This week I present a classic mystery by Agatha Christie, Hallowe’en Party, which features M. Hercule Poirot and his mystery writing friend Ariadne Oliver. I finished this over the weekend for a November classic group read.

"No," said Mrs. Oliver, "she hadn't gone home . . . " Her voice faltered. "We found her in the end—in the library. That's where—where someone did it, you know. Bobbing for apples."

(Chapter three)


A Hallowe’en party is under way, and for the mystery writer Ariadne Oliver, the most curious guest is the little girl with a passion for tall tales. She claims to have witnessed a murder. When the girl suddenly falls victim to a deadly party prank, Ariadne and Hercule Poirot wonder which guest silenced her. But unmasking a killer this Hallowe’en isn’t going to be easy—for there isn’t a soul in Woodleigh Common who believes the little story-teller was even murdered . . .
