9780062073914: The Mysterious Affair at Styles: A Hercule Poirot Mystery (Hercule Poirot Mysteries)

The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to William Morrow Paperbacks. The Christie classic, The Mysterious Affair at Styles is the book that launched the phenomenal detecting career of the master sleuth Poirot—a perplexing locked room murder mystery that was Poirot's first appearance on the crime fiction scene…and now featuring a "missing chapter" as well as commentary from Agatha Christie expert John Curran.

From the Back Cover:

The first Hercule Poirot mystery, now published for the first time with a previously deleted scene and commentary from Agatha Christie expert John Curran.

This is the Agatha Christie book that started it all—the sublime introduction of her master sleuth, Hercule Poirot, and his now legendary powers of detection. Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorp and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom? Suspects abound in the quaint village of Styles St. Mary—from the heiress's fawning new husband to her two stepsons, her volatile housekeeper, and a pretty nurse who works in a hospital dispensary. Making his unforgettable debut, the brilliant Belgian detective is on the case.

From the Inside Flap:

Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorpe, and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom? Sus-pects abound in the quaint village of Styles St. Mary?from the heiress?s fawning new husband to her two stepsons, her volatile housekeeper, and a pretty nurse who works in a hospital dispensary. Making his unforgettable debut, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is on the case.
?The key to the success of this style of detective novel,? writes Elizabeth George in her Introduction, ?lies in how the author deals with both the clues and the red herrings, and it has to be said that no one bettered Agatha Christie at this game.?
