Summary
Enjoy the first novels that brought the world two of Agatha Christie's most enduring detectives: Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot. The Murder at the Vicarage The first Miss Marple mystery, one which tests all her powers of observation and deduction. "Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe," declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, "would be doing the world at large a favor!" It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth and one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later when the colonel is found shot dead in the clergyman's study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe. The Mysterious Affair at Styles Captain Arthur Hastings, invalided in the Great War, is recuperating as a guest of John Cavendish at Styles Court, the country place of John's autocratic old aunt, Emily Inglethorpe, she of a sizeable fortune and recently remarried to a man twenty years her junior. When Emily's sudden heart attack is found to be attributable to strychnine, Hastings recruits an old friend, now retired, to aid in the local investigation. With impeccable timing, Hercule Poirot, the famous Belgian detective, makes his dramatic entrance into the pages of crime literature
