24 Festive Tasks: Door 12 - St. Andrew's Day, Task 4 (Books Featuring Golf)

4:50 from Paddington - Agatha Christie Murder on the Links - Agatha Christie Why Didn't They Ask Evans? - Agatha Christie The Clicking of Cuthbert - P.G. Wodehouse Goldfinger - Ian Fleming Murder in the Mews and Other Stories - Agatha Christie The Mystery of the Blue Jar: A Short Story - Agatha Christie The Sunningdale Mystery: A Short Story - Agatha Christie

Golf is key to a number of books by Agatha Christie (not only in the Poirot series -- Hastings is not the only character by Christie who is an ardent golfer).  So my list of favorites is largely a mash-up of BrokenTune's and Obsidian's:

 

Agatha Christie favorites:

1.  4:50 From Paddington

2.  Murder on the Links

3.  Why Didn't They Ask Evans?

 

Honorable mentions from my TBR:

 

1.  P.G. Wodehouse: The Clicking of Cuthbert (short stories)

2.  Ian Fleming: Goldfinger (I've seen the movie but have yet to read the book)

 

... and a few Christie short stories:

 

1.  Murder in the Mews (Poirot)

2.  The Mystery of the Blue Jar (standalone)

3.  The Sunningdale Mystery (Tommy & Tuppence)
