9780002321396: The Mysterious Affair at Styles (Agatha Christie Collection)

Agatha Christie’s first novel, 80 years old this year, reissued in hardback on the 25th anniversary of the author’s death.

With impeccable timing Hercule Poirot, the renowned Belgian detective, makes his dramatic entrance on to the English crime stage.

Recently, there had been some strange goings on at Styles St Mary. Evelyn, constant companion to old Mrs Inglethorp, had stormed out of the house muttering something about ‘a lot of sharks’. And with her, something indefinable had gone from the atmosphere. Her presence had spelt security; now the air seemed rife with suspicion and impending evil.

A shattered coffee cup, a splash of candle grease, a bed of begonias… all Poirot required to display his now legendary powers of detection.

Review:

‘Almost too ingenious… very clearly and brightly told.’
Times Literary Supplement

‘Deals with poisons in a knowledgeable way… Miss Agatha Christie knows her job.’
Pharmaceutical Journal

Book Description:

Captain Hastings, wounded at the Front, is recuperating at Styles Court in Essex. The house belongs to the Inglethorpe family, friends from his childhood. When Emily Inglethorpe is found poisoned, it is fortunate for Hastings that he bumps into his old friend Hercule Poirot, who can help to solve this horrible murder. When the evidence seems to point to one particular family member it is up to Poirot, through his methodical investigation, to prove the real murderer is someone else entirely.
