Agatha Christie The Mysterious Affair at Styles Chapter I.I Go to Styles The intense interest aroused in the public by what was known at the time as The Styles Case has now somewhat subsided. Nevertheless, in view of the world-wide notoriety which attended it, I have been asked, both by my friend Poirot and the family themselves, to write an account of the whole story. This, we trust, will effectually silence the sensational rumours which still persist. I will therefore briefly set down the ...

Cat Among the Pigeons For Stella and Larry Kirwan Prologue Summer Term It was the opening day of the summer term at Meadowbank school. The late afternoon sun shone down on the broad gravel sweep in front of the house. The front door was flung hospitably wide, and just within it, admirably suited to its Georgian proportions, stood Miss Vansittart, every hair in place, wearing an impeccably cut coat and skirt. Some parents who knew no better had taken her for the great Miss Bulstrode herself, not ...

Agatha Christie The Big Four 1. The Unexpected Quest I have met people who enjoy a channel crossing men who can sit calmly in their deck-chairs and, on arrival, wait until the boat is moored, then gather their belongings together without fuss and disembark. Personally, I can never manage this. From the moment I get on board I feel that the time is too short to settle down to anything. I move my suitcases from one spot to another, and if I go down to the saloon for a meal. I bolt my food with an ...

Agatha Christie The Mystery of the Blue Train Chapter 1. The Man with the White Hair It was close on midnight when a man crossed the Place de la Concorde. In spite of the handsome fur coat which garbed his meagre form, there was something essentially weak and paltry about him. A little man with a face like a rat. A man, one would say, who could never play a conspicuous part, or rise to prominence in any sphere. And yet, in leaping to such a conclusion, an onlooker would have been wrong. For this ...

Agatha Christie Black Coffee Chapter 1 Hercule Poirot sat at breakfast in his small but agreeably cosy flat in Whitehall Mansions. He had enjoyed his brioche and his cup of hot chocolate. Unusually, for he was a creature of habit and rarely varied his breakfast routine, he had asked his valet, George, to make him a second cup of chocolate. While he was awaiting it, he glanced again at the mornings post which lay on his breakfast table. Meticulously tidy as always, he had placed the discarded ...

Already the intense interest and excitement aroused by the murder of George Alfred St Vincent Marsh, fourth Baron Edgware, is a thing past and forgotten. Newer sensations have taken its place.

Agatha Christie Peril at End House Chapter 1 The Majestic Hotel No seaside town in the south of England is, I think, as attractive as St Loo. It is well named the Queen of Watering Places and reminds one forcibly of the Riviera. The Cornish coast is to my mind every bit as fascinating as that of the south of France. I remarked as much to my friend, Hercule Poirot. So it said on our menu in the restaurant car yesterday, mon ami. Your remark is not original. But dont you agree He was smiling to ...

Agatha Christie Three Act Tragedy 1 Mr. Satterthwaite sat on the terrace of Crows Nest and watched his host, Sir Charles Cartwright, climbing up the path from the sea. Crows Nest was a modern bungalow of the better type. It had no half timbering, no gables, no excrescences dear to a third-class builders heart. It was a plain white solid building deceptive as to size, since it was a good deal bigger than it looked. It owed its name to its position, high up, overlooking the harbour of Loomouth. ...
