The Mysterious Affair at Styles: A Detective Story (Modern Library Classics)

The Mysterious Affair at Styles: A Detective Story (Modern Library Classics) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorpe, and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom? Sus-pects abound in the quaint village of Styles St. Mary—from the heiress’s fawning new husband to her two stepsons, her volatile housekeeper, and a pretty nurse who works in a hospital dispensary. Making his unforgettable debut, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is on the case.

“The key to the success of this style of detective novel,” writes Elizabeth George in her Introduction, “lies in how the author deals with both the clues and the red herrings, and it has to be said that no one bettered Agatha Christie at this game.”

About the Author

Elizabeth Georges novels have appeared regularly on international bestseller lists since the publication of her first book in 1988. Several of her Inspector Lynley mysteries have been filmed by the BBC and broadcast on PBS, with more to follow. Her works include A Traitor to Memory; I, Richard; and A Place of Hiding.
