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

Now a fully restored edition that includes newly discovered material by Agatha Christie.

Captain Arthur Hastings, invalided in the Great War, is recuperating as a guest of John Cavendish at Styles Court, the 'country-place' of John's autocratic old aunt, Emily Inglethorpe—she of a sizeable fortune, and so recently remarried to a man twenty years her junior. When Emily's sudden heart attack is found to be attributable to strychnine, Hastings recruits an old friend, now retired, to aid in the local investigation. With impeccable timing, Hercule Poirot, the famous Belgian detective, makes his dramatic entrance into the pages of crime literature.

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:

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.?
