Hercule Poirot is already on the clues when Alice Ascher is assassinated in Andover. It's one down, twenty-five to go alphabetically. On the loose, there is a serial killer. His macabre calling card is to leave the guide to the ABC Railway next to the body of each victim. But if A is bludgeoned ... to death in Andover for Alice Asher; and B is for Betty Bernard, strangled on Bexhill's beach with her belt; then who is going to be Victim C?

Quotes from The ABC Murders

I suppose next time I come home I shall find you wearing false moustaches—or are you doing so now?'
Poirot winced. His moustaches had always been his sensitive point. He was inordinately proud of them. My words touched him on the raw.
'No, no, indeed, mon ami. That day, I pray the good God, is still far off. The false moustaches! Quelle Horreur!’
He tugged at them vigorously to assure me of their genuine character.
'Well, they are very luxuriant still,' I said.
'N’est-ce pas? Never, in the whole of London, have I seen a pair of moustaches to equal mine.'
A good job too, I thought privately.

Words, madmoiselle, are only the outer clothing of ideas.

It's like all those quiet people, when they do lose their tempers they lose them with a vengeance.

Who are you? You don't belong to the police?'
'I am better than the police,' said Poirot. He said it without conscious arrogance. It was, to him, a simple statement of fact.

Vous eprouves trop d'emotion, Hastings, It affects your hands and your wits. Is that a way to fold a coat? And regard what you have done to my pyjamas. If the hairwash breaks what will befall them?'
'Good heavens, Poirot,' I cried, 'this is a matter of life and death. What does it matter what happens to our clothes?'
'You have no sense of proportion Hastings. We cannot catch a train earlier than the time that it leaves, and to ruin one's clothes will not be the least helpful in preventing a murder.

I admit," I said, "that a second murder in a book often cheers things up." - Hastings
