BiblioFiles #36: Mystery Fiction (and Branagh's Murder on the Orient Express)
You may or may not know that we of the Andrews variety are great fans of the mystery novel in general and Agatha Christie in particular. There is rarely a time when a Poirot or a Miss Marple is not sitting on our bedside tables. And after a family outing to see Branagh's new adaption of Christie's masterpiece, Murder on the Orient Express, we thought this would be a great opportunity to bring our favorite pleasure reads to the BiblioFiles table. Today we are giving all of our little grey cells to the problem of mystery fiction!
If you haven't read Murder on the Orient Express, or if you don't want any spoilers concerning the recent adaptation, stay tuned for a warning at about 30 minutes into the show, which will be your cue to pause the podcast so that we don't ruin any of the fun for you!
