Agatha Christie was living with her Mother and sister Madge in 1916 in her home town of Torquay, when Madge bet her sister that she could not wirite a detective story, a new art form at the time.. Agatha got half way through and was stuck, when her Mother said "go away to the moors on a hiking holiday, clear your head and finish this "it's good so far!".
Out of this holiday came Hercule Peroit, Captain Hastings and Inspector Japp who were to be in Christie novels for the next fifty years. It took four years to find a publisher for "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" and the novel was evenutally published and copyrighted in 1920. During world war II Christie wrote Poirot's last adventure "Curtain". He's now a feeble old man living in Styles St Mary once again for this his final case. "Curtain" was kept in a bank vault and published after Dame Agath'a death in 1976. What is fascinating to me is this is early example of English detective fiction, coming as it did right after Sherlock Holmes. The art form was developing - this is a grand audio production with a large cast - "Styles" is timeless and historically important.

Loved, loved, loved this book. I am more of a Miss Marple fan than H. Poirot, but this book was great, I listened to it two times!! Beeanie4

I didn't notice the book was on two CD's. My error but don't let it be yours. This is nothing more than a very short story. It is a bad one at that as there is so much of the story chopped out, the book doesn't flow at all.

Love these audio presentations, it's like seeing a play in your mind. This one is very well done and keeps you guessing as Agatha always manages to do. Great enjoyment!
