It will be the first book featuring the famous Hercule Poirot since Agatha Christie's death in 1976.
Agatha Christie Limited chairman and grandson of the famous novelist, Mathew Prichard, said in a statement from publishers HarperCollins, "Her idea for a plot line was so compelling and her passion for my grandmother's work so strong, that we felt that the time was right for a new Christie to be written."
Sophie Hannah follows in the footsteps of other contemporary novelist such as William Boyd who has penned the latest James Bond novel (released September 26, 2013), a series made famous by its original author Ian Fleming.
The book is yet to be titled and will be released next year by HarperCollins.
