Lady Athelinda Playford, indeed

Hannah_2 cred Phillipa GEdge

Today, Wednesday 6 September, sees the UK publication of the second Agatha Christie approved Poirot book, written by best-seller author, Sophie Hannah; entitled “Closed Casket.”

What caught our attention was the wonderful name of central character, Lady Athelinda Playford, whose mansion in Clonakilty, Co Cork, attracts, presumably, an unsolved murder-mystery or two.

Clearly, Ms. Hannah has a knack for designing beautiful, kitsch-classic names, as did Ms. Christie (more on this in later posts).   The photo by the way, is SH (not LAP or AC)…
