If you haven’t read this book yet, it is probably at your local library, but if you just have to have an ereader copy today, I’ve linked the book cover for you. This edition includes 10 illustrations. From legendary author Agatha Christie, The Mysterious Affair at Styles is the writer’s very first published novel, published in 1920, and features the debut of Hercule Poirot, a detective in the tradition of Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes. Readers are introduced to Poirot – who stands only five foot four and sports a distinctive pointed mustache – through the eyes of Lieutenant Arthur Hastings amid the mayhem of the story, which features literary devices now ubiquitous in the mystery genre, in no small thanks to Christie: a large manor house estate, a murder and a cast of suspects who each has their own secrets.
