    First Christie read for me, but yes, this was motivated by the movie. But I am familiar with And Then There Were None.

    I think you'll like it. I read several a few years ago, then preferred watching adaptations on Poirot with David Suchet on PBS. There's an interesting connection between the two books, but I'll let you be the detective.

    I'll take in the new movie at some point. It'll have to do a lot to top this version -

    NKY author Stacie Haas has released this book. Her son is classmates with my youngest. Pretty cool.

    I need to clarify this. I figured out the main plot way early in the book. The thing with the King at the end, kind of caught me off guard.

    Dave Robicheaux is one of the great protagonists in modern crime fiction. And Clete Purcell isn't far behind.

    Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari. Extremely thought-provoking book about how we got here as a species.
