    Inhaltsangabe

    Enjoy the first novels that brought the world two of Agatha Christies’ most enduring detectives: Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot.

    The Murder at the Vicarage: The first Miss Marple mystery, one which tests all her powers of observation and deduction.

    "Anyone who murdered Colonel Protheroe," declared the parson, brandishing a carving knife above a joint of roast beef, "would be doing the world at large a favor!"

    It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later - when the Colonel is found shot dead in the clergyman’s study. But as Miss Marple soon discovers, the whole village seems to have had a motive to kill Colonel Protheroe.

    The Mysterious Affair at Styles: Captain Arthur Hastings, invalided in the Great War, is recuperating as a guest of John Cavendish at Styles Court, the "country-place" of John's autocratic old aunt, Emily Inglethorpe - she of a sizeable fortune, and so recently remarried to a man 20 years her junior. When Emily's sudden heart attack is found to be attributable to strychnine, Hastings recruits an old friend, now retired, to aid in the local investigation. With impeccable timing, Hercule Poirot, the famous Belgian detective, makes his dramatic entrance into the pages of crime literature.

    Make sure not to miss the rest of these detectives’ exciting adventures!

    A wonderful story, ruined by a terrible reader.

    Murder at the Vicarage is absolutely ruined with this shrill and irritating voice.
    The second story, Mysterious Affair at Styles, is mediocre in its reading. Save your money and get The Best of Poirot also available on here. It's so much more enjoyable to listen to.

    Loved Poirot, didn’t enjoy Ms Marple

    I loved Hugh Frasers Interpretation of ‘The mysterious affair at Styles’ and the story itself, however i didn’t like Joan Hickson or the Ms Marple story.
