9780007527595: The Labours of Hercules

On the verge of retirement, Hercule Poirot can't resist the lure of a seemingly unsolvable series of recent crimes--from a lost Pekinese to a man driven mad by love to a gentleman poisoned by gossip.

From the Back Cover:

In appearance Hercule Poirot hardly resembled anancient Greek hero. Yet—reasoned the detective—like Hercules he had been responsible for riddingsociety of some of its most unpleasant monsters.

So, in the period leading up to his retirement, Poirotmakes up his mind to accept just twelve more cases:his self-imposed “Labors.” Each would go down in theannals of crime as a heroic feat of deduction.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976.
