Headline to publish Suchet on Poirot

Headline has acquired the world rights in Poirot and Me by actor David Suchet, writing with Geoffrey Wansell. Publisher Emma Tait bought the book at auction from Michael Alcock at Johnson and Alcock, with plans to publish in autumn 2013.

In the book, Suchet will reflect on the 24 years that he has played the role of Agatha Christie's famous detective Poirot. Filming on the last five episodes is about to start, meaning that all the Poirot stories will have been filmed with Suchet in the starring role.

Tait said: "I am so excited to be publishing this book, which offers a unique opportunity in television publishing. Rather than an outsider's overview, it is the story of an iconic role told by the actor himself and it is fantastic to be working so closely with David and Geoffrey."
