Excerpt from The Mysterious Affair at Styles

I am currently re-reading Dame Agatha Christie's The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the first Hercule Poirot mystery. This was Agatha's first published novel, and received good critical acclaim.

I mentioned The Life We Bury in my last post, and I had to bring it up again to give you a teaser. I really enjoyed this one. Faintly reminiscent of To Kill a Mockingbird, this well-woven mystery is a pleasure to read. The writer/sleuth has a complex background and ...
