A New Agatha Christie Miniseries Is Coming to Amazon Prime
A new mystery is coming to Amazon Prime, and you don't want to miss it. The series is Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders, a Prime Original Series based on the novel of the same name by the legendary mystery writer.
The three-episode miniseries features fictional detective Hercule Poirot. It's set in 1933 and follows the investigation surrounding a series of methodical murders—crimes made even more mysterious by the fact that copies of The ABC Railway Guide (an historic U.K. publication) are left behind at each scene. Amazon describes the plot this way: "Hercule Poirot, older and greyer, receives letters threatening murder. The sender signs themselves only as ‘A.B.C.' When he takes the letters to the police looking for help, Hercule finds all his old friends have moved on. But soon there is a murder, and the once-great detective must take matters into his own hands." The series looks spectacularly suspenseful, as evidenced by the trailer, which you can watch below.

The series is directed by Alex Gabassi, who previously directed The Frankenstein Chronicles (2017). It stars John Malkovich (Red, Being John Malcovich) as Hercule Poirot, Rupert Grint (The Harry Potter Series, Charlie Countryman) as Inspector Crome, Andrew Buchan (Broadchurch, The Honourable Woman) as Franklin Clarke, and Tara Fitzgerald (Game of Thrones, I Capture the Castle) as Lady Hermione Clarke.
Agatha Christie's The ABC Murders will be available to stream on Amazon Prime beginning on February 1. If you'd like to read the book upon which the miniseries is based, you can find The A. B. C. Murders: A Hercule Poirot Mystery on Amazon and Indiebound.
