Teaser Tuesday 394: Murder on the Links

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by The Purple Booker. 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 to you Murder on the Links by Agatha Christie, her second novel to feature Hercule Poirot.

In a moment Poirot had leapt from the car, his eyes blazing with excitement.

"What is that you say? Murdered? When? How?"

(Chapter Three: At the Villa Geneviève)

Series: (Hercule Poirot #2)

An urgent cry for help brings Hercule Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies facedown in a shallow grave on a golf course.

But why is the dead man wearing an overcoat that is too big for him? And for whom was the impassioned love letter in the pocket? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse . . .
