Agatha Christie

The Mysterious Affair at Styles

The Mysterious Affair at Styles isn’t just Agatha Christie’s first Poirot novel, it’s currently the only Poirot novel in the public domain. It was written on a bet that Christie couldn’t write a detective novel in which the reader couldn’t deduce the criminal. Her attempt laid the foundation for one of literature’s most famous detectives.
In this novel we’re introduced to Poirot as he’s settling in to a new life in England. After a woman is murdered at the country estate he’s visiting, he has to use his detective skills to catch the criminal. The Mysterious Affair at Styles sets the stage for the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, and has everything you’d expect from a story rich in those classic detective fiction tropes.

    I have read lots of Agatha Christie's books, and all of them are just extremely intriguing. I often get told off for reading too much of her books as they sometimes distract me from my lessons, but it's worth the trouble >.<

    Imagination is a good servant, and a bad master.

    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.

    We had a good yarn about old times, and it ended in his inviting me down to Styles to spend my leave there.
