Book Summary:

The heiress of Styles has been murdered, dying in agony from strychnine slipped into her coffee. And there are plenty of people who would gain from her death: the financially strapped stepson, the gold-digging younger husband, and an embittered daughter-in-law. Monsieur Poirot comes out of retirement to figure out who would have the impudence--and the motive--to commit the crime. In this book Agatha Christie's eccentric and hugely popular detective, Hercule Poirot, was introduced to the world, launching her career as the most famous and best-loved of all mystery writers. Newly designed and typeset in a modern 6-by-9-inch format by Waking Lion Press.

Book Summary:

The Mysterious Affair at Styles by Agatha Christie The book begins at Styles Court, located in Essex, UK. The mansion has several people living in it, including Emily Inglethorp, the elderly owner of the estate. When the rest of the people who live there wake up in the morning, they find that Emily has died and it looks like she was poisoned. In one of Christie's novels about Hercule Poirot, the famous detective discovers that Emily had great wealth, providing a highly probable motive for the murder. The suspects included Alfred Inglethorp, a younger man Emily just married, the Cavendish family, which includes Emily's stepchildren, and Cynthia and Evelyn, both Emily's friends. John Cavendish, according to Emily's will, is the one who will get the majority stake in the mansion, so at first, this points the suspicious finger at her. However, it is said that, on the day of the murder, Emily had argued with John and Alfred and changed him will. No one can find any evidence that such a newly created will exists. The crime investigator is Inspector Japp, who believes that Alfred is the one who committed the murder. He refuses to provide an alibi, and he's the one with the most to gain (they found an updated version of Emily's will, in which Alfred inherits the mansion). Because he is so young, it seems that he is simply a man looking for easy money. Alfred is found guilty of the murder and he did it in coordination with Evelyn. Apparently, he had written a letter about Emily's murder, and this is what made Emily so angry on the day of the murder. Not being able to go another day without her telling someone, he decided to kill her that night.

Book Summary:

Marking exactly 100 years since the publication of Agatha Christie's first novel, this new edition includes a previously deleted chapter and a newly discovered essay, 'Drugs and Detective Stories', in which Agatha Christie reminisces about the inspiration for Poirot's first case. 'Beware! Peril to the detective who says: "It is so small - it does not matter..." Everything matters.' After the Great War, life can never be the same again. Wounds need healing, and the horror of violent death banished into memory. Captain Arthur Hastings is invited to the rolling country estate of Styles to recuperate from injuries sustained at the Front. It is the last place he expects to encounter murder. Fortunately he knows a former detective, a Belgian refugee, who has grown bored of retirement... 'Agatha Christie is the gateway drug to crime fiction thanks to her storytelling skills. Just one book is never enough...' VAL McDERMID 'What a writer. A hundred years after her first novel, and we are all still standing in her shadow.' ANDREW TAYLOR 'Agatha Christie must surely be the most imitated author in the entire canon of literature - what greater acclaim could there be?' PETER JAMES

Book Summary:

Excerpt from Chapter 1: "The intense interest aroused in the public by what was known at the time as "The Styles Case" has now somewhat subsided. Nevertheless, in view of the world-wide notoriety which attended it, I have been asked, both by my friend Poirot and the family themselves, to write an account of the whole story. This, we trust, will effectually silence the sensational rumours which still persist. I will therefore briefly set down the circumstances which led to my being connected with the affair. I had been invalided home from the Front; and, after spending some months in a rather depressing Convalescent Home, was given a month's sick leave. Having no near relations or friends, I was trying to make up my mind what to do, when I ran across John Cavendish."

His friend Hastings arrives as a guest at her home. When the woman is killed, Poirot uses his detective skills to solve the mystery.The book includes maps of the house, the murder scene, and a drawing of a fragment of a will. The true first publication of the novel was as a weekly serial in The Times, including the maps of the house and other illustrations included in the book. This novel was one of the first ten books published by Penguin Books when it began in 1935.This first mystery novel by Agatha Christie was well received by reviewers. An analysis in 1990 was positive about the plot, considered the novel one of the few by Christie that is well-anchored in time and place, a story that knows it describes the end of an era, and mentions that the plot is clever. Christie had not mastered cleverness in her first novel, as "too many clues tend to cancel each other out"; this was judged a difficulty "which Conan Doyle never satisfactorily overcame, but which Christie would."

Book Summary:

★This Book has been professionally proofread to ensure accuracy and readability★ ◆well Illustrated ◆One of the best Book to read ◆Well Formatted ◆Attractive matte Finished cover The Mysterious Affair at Styles is a detective novel by British writer Agatha Christie. It was written in the middle of the First World War, in 1916, and first published by John Lane in the United States in October 1920 and in the United Kingdom by The Bodley Head (John Lane's UK company) on 21 January 1921. This book introduces us to many memorable characters, none more so than the protagonist, Hercule Poirot. This diminutive egg-headed man is said to be one of the smartest heads on the planet, and has some cheesy pick-up lines for an old man. The protagonist's aide, Captain Hastings, is how Christie involves herself with the story and it starts slowly with the introduction of characters. The characters are well described and can be easily identified by their dialogues. This can be a joy and a pain to read, but once the story gets to the murder, it is a treat for the mind and just keeps enthralling the reader, chapter after chapter. The story starts with Hastings spending time with his good friend John Cavendish in their manor in Styles, England. Although the family is very tight-knit, inner feuds are always prevalent among them. But once it is known that there is a murderer among them and all suspects are hiding some facts about themselves, Hastings quickly calls upon his most trusted friend, Monsieur Hercule Poirot. As the story progresses, it discourages you from taking a break as Christie ends chapters on major cliffhangers.
