Publisher's Summary

In this first novel by Agatha Christie, she introduces the inimitable Hercule Poirot, who would go on to appear in 33 Christie novels and 54 short stories. Outside of Sherlock Holmes and perhaps Philip Marlowe, he is the best-known detective in the history of the genre. The Mysterious Affair at Styles deals with the case of an old woman poisoned with strychnine for her money. Nothing is obvious, however, in the way Christie handles a plot. The story spirals round and round, leading the reader in one direction, then another, convincing the reader that first one character, then another is the guilty party.

Not my cup of tea!!!

Did not care for the book... 3 stars to be fair as I believe it was just my taste in novels not the quality of the novel

- PAR-TEE "Bongoman"

Performance detracts from story.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The reader was not able to distinctly separate characters so part way thru, I had to buy another version read by David Suchet. Skip this version with this reader. All voiced characters sound the same and very confusing. Not worth the money.
