9780007121137: Poirot's Early Cases

Captain Hastings recounts 18 of Poirot's early cases from the days before he was famous...Hercule Poirot delighted in telling people that he was probably the best detective in the world. So turning back the clock to trace eighteen of the cases which helped establish his professional reputation was always going to be a fascinating experience. With his career still in its formative years, the panache with which Hercule Poirot could solve even the most puzzling mystery is obvious. Chronicled by his friend Captain Hastings, these eighteen early cases - from theft and robbery to kidnapping and murder - were all guaranteed to test Poirot's soon-to-be-famous 'little grey cells' to their absolute limit.

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

From AudioFile:

Be prepared to be charmed by David Suchet and Hugh Fraser reading this collection of 18 Agatha Christie short stories featuring Hercule Poirot. The two actors have for many years starred as Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings in the inimitable BBC specials imported by American public television. They clearly relish the material, however short it may be on plausibility, for they deliver the many pleasures with zest--the complex characters, well-set scenes, interesting villains, and, of course, Hastings and Poirot. Suchet reads most of the stories, and his performance, in particular, is one to treasure. On stage, one might say that he chews up the scenery. On tape, he mesmerizes, creating an unforgettable cast of characters and reading with such a nuanced sense of timing that one sees the action unfold as one listens. His reading is a generous gift to listeners. A.C.S. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
