9780006498162: The Mysterious Affair at Styles

This is Agatha Christie's first novel. A mysteriously destroyed will, a shattered coffee cup, a splash of candle grease, an old envelope, a newly planted bed of begonia's, these are the seemingly unrelated details surrounding the murder of wealthy Mrs Inglethrop.

Review:

“Almost too ingenious … very clearly and brightly told.” Times Literary Supplement

“Very well contrived.” Sunday Times

“Altogether a skilful tale and a talented first book.” Daily News

“The most ingenious and absorbingly interesting tale of sensations and mystery we have read for a long time.” Bookman

“Well written, well proportioned, and full of surprises. Lovers of good stories will, without exception, rejoice in this book.” The British Weekly

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.
