Agatha Christie's eccentric and hugely popular detective, Hercule Poirot, was introduced to the world in this book, which launched her career as the most famous and best loved of all mystery writers.

"The Mysterious Affair at Styles" is a detective novel by Agatha Christie. It was written in the middle of World War I, in 1916, and first published by John Lane in the United States in October 1920 and in the United Kingdom by The Bodley Head on 21 January 1921. Styles was Christie's first published novel, introducing Hercule Poirot, Inspector (later, Chief Inspector) Japp, and Arthur Hastings. The story is told in first person by Hastings and features many of the elements that have become icons of the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, largely due to Christie's influence. It is set in a large, isolated country manor. There are a half-dozen suspects, most of whom are hiding facts about themselves. The book includes maps of the house, the murder scene, and a drawing of a fragment of a will, as well as a number of red herrings and surprise plot twists. "The Secret Adversary" is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie, first published in the United Kingdom by The Bodley Head in January 1922. The book introduces the characters of Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie books and one collection of short stories written throughout her writing career.

Miss Ethel Browne is a typical adornment of her era. A single lady of a certain age in the period before the First World War usually assists a senior, or less healthy family member with the running of their house, or affords help of a more modest kind, in order to feel useful. Sometimes they are inspired to approach places of last resort to befriend and encourage poor unfortunates. In Miss Browne's case the Rescue Home pairs her with Mabel Roberts, who has had a terrible start in life, and has fallen into dubious ways. Miss Browne is somewhat dazzled by Mabel's beauty, and charmed by her simple transparency and determination to be good. She finds Mabel a good position as general maid to two elderly ladies, and all seems set fair. But, as the months go by, so do the reports of arguments, temper and secretiveness. Positions come and go, as Miss Browne struggles to help Mabel surmount her failings and find a foothold in the better life. Having 'slipped' somewhat, in a position as a waitress in a restaurant, Mabel disappears. In the end, Miss Browne finds her, only to discover that life has dealt Mabel a harsher blow. Miss Browne's Friend was originally published in four parts between June 1914 and March 1915 in the Free Church Suffrage Times, a year after the publication of F. M. Mayor's celebrated first novel, The Third Miss Symons. With its mixture of wry humour and tragedy, it confirmed her reputation as one of the most sensitive exponents of the challenges and uncertainties of single women's lives in her times.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles isn’t just Agatha Christie’s first Poirot novel, it was the only Poirot novel in the public domain until 2019. It was written on a bet that Christie couldn’t write a detective novel in which the reader couldn’t deduce the criminal. Her attempt laid the foundation for one of literature’s most famous detectives. In this novel we’re introduced to Poirot as he’s settling in to a new life in England. After a woman is murdered at the country estate he’s visiting, he has to use his detective skills to catch the criminal. The Mysterious Affair at Styles sets the stage for the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, and has everything you’d expect from a story rich in those classic detective fiction tropes. This book is part of the Standard Ebooks project, which produces free public domain ebooks.
