Hercule Poirot Classic Mysteries

Hickory Dickory Duck

I dissect rucksacks, my friend. It is very interesting.' Hercule Poirot doesn't need all his detective skills to realise something is troubling his secretary, Miss Lemon - she has made three mistakes in a simple letter. It seems an outbreak of kleptomania at the student hostel in which her sister works is distracting his usually efficient assistant. Deciding that desperate time call for desperate measures, the great detective agrees to investigate. But unknown to Poirot, desperation is a motive he shares with a killer...

Sad Cypres

'Does it matter? She might have done it, yes! I don't care is she did. I don't want her hanged, I tell you! Beautiful young Elinor Carlisle stood serenely in the dock, accused of the murder of Mary Gerrard, her rival in love. The evidence was damning: only Elinor had the motive, the opportunity and the means to administer the fatal poison.
Yet, inside the hostile courtroom, only one man still presumed Elinor was innocent until proven guilty. Hercule Poirot was all that stood between Elinor and the gallows...

Death in the Clouds

'You seem very much interested in the wasp, Monsieur Poirot.'
From seat No.9, Hercule Poirot was ideally placed to observe his fellow air passengers. Over to his right sat a pretty young woman, clearly infatuated with the man opposite; ahead, in seat No.13, sat a Countess with a poorly-concealed cocaine habit; across the gangway in seat No.8, a detective writer was bring troubled by an aggressive wasp.
What Poirot did not yet realize was that behind him, in seat No.2, sat the slumped, lifeless body of a woman...

The Clocks

The cuckoo clock struck three all right, but all the others were about an hour fast. How very off! When the Cavendish Bureau was telephoned and asked to send one of their secretaries to a house in Wilbraham Crescent, the caller made no mention of the dead body she would find there. Who made the call to the agency? Who was the murdered man? And why were there clocks in the room that didn't belong there? The clocks had stopped, but the time is ticking away for Hercule Poirot...

The Mystery of the Blue Train

'I want a change. To be in the midst of things - exciting things - even if I'm only the looker-on. You know, things don't happen in St Mary Mead.'
When the luxurious Blue Train arrives at Nice, a guard attempts to wake Ruth Kettering from her slumbers. But she will never wake again - for a heavy blow has killed her, disfiguring her features almost beyond recognition. What is more, her precious rubies are missing. The prime suspect is Ruth's estranged husband, Derek. Yet Poirot is not convinced, so he stages an eerie re-enactment of the journey, complete with the murderer on board...

The Murder on the Links

'The true work, it is done from within. The little grey cells - remember always the little grey cells, mon ami. An urgent cry for help brings Poirot to France. But he arrives too late to save his client, whose brutally stabbed body now lies face downwards in a shallow grave on a gold course. But why is the dead man wearing his son's overcoat? And who was the impassioned love-letter for? Before Poirot can answer these questions, the case is turned upside down by the discovery of a second, identically murdered corpse...

Agatha Christie The World's Favourite

In a global poll to mark of Queen of Crime's 125th Birthday, Three books stood out as clear favourite amongst agatha christie fans past and prensent, collecting nearly half the amassed votes between them.

All three books represents the pinnacle of crime writing packed with murder, suspense,a dn highly original endings that have shocked and surprised readers for decades. They are three very different books, but they have one thing in common- the Fiendsih inguenity of Agatha Christie.

And Then There Were None was Agatha Christie's most successful book. With over 100 million copies sold worldwide, it is also the bestselling crime novel of all time. Called Agatha Christie's masterpiece (Spectator) and the most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written (New York Times), it was famously difficult to write. Christie said she liked it for its difficult technique which was a challenge.

In And Then There Were None, ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number.

The other two books see the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot facing two of his most challenging cases: In Murder on the Orient Express, an American millionaire dies of multiple stab wounds on a snowbound train bound for Paris, and in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, a wealthy widower is stabbed to death in his study, the sensational book that made Agatha Christie a household name.
