Hercule Poirot Central has again updated its look, aiming for a brighter and cleaner appearance. New articles will be included, but some have been retired (for example, the Poirot Crime Map pinpointing his stories). Look for new articles, new themes for the site, and the (eventual!) return of the discussion board.
