This premium quality large print edition contains the complete and unabridged original classic version of The Mysterious Affair at Styles, Agatha Christie's first mystery novel, printed on heavyweight, bright white paper in a large 7.44"x9.69" format, with a fully laminated full-color cover featuring an original design. First published in 1920, The Mysterious Affair at Styles is both the first of Agatha Christie's many mystery novels and the first appearance of dapper little Hercule Poirot, the Belgian detective. Confronted with a house full of suspects, it falls to Poirot to sort throught the clues, examine the motives, fit together the pieces that don't quite fit, and solve the puzzle of who poisoned Mrs. Inglethorp...and how they did it. Although published in 1920 the story was written in 1916, at a time when England had become home to numerous Belgian refugees displaced by WWI. The "Rape of Belgium," originated in the early days of the war, was still a popular theme with British propagandists, Germany's invasion of Belgium having furnished a major rationale for Britain's entry into the war. These facts undoubtedly influenced not only this particular story but the Poirot character as well. Agatha Christie's mysteries were characterized by complex but plausible plots, unlike some other mystery writers who sometimes resorted to absurdly convoluted and contrived resolutions. Generally avoiding secret passages, hidden doors, and the abrupt appearance of new characters, devices which were well-worn by her time, Christie elevated the "red herring" and the "blind alley" to the level of a mischievous art form, where the herrings may turn out not to be red and the alleys may not be blind after all, all the while providing enough clues for the attentive reader to solve the mystery. For fans of the classic mystery story, those new to Agatha Christie or Hercule Poirot, or readers new to the genre, The Mysterious Affair at Styles represents a thoroughly enjoyable tale, a well-crafted and polished mystery enjoyed by readers for generations and all the more remarkable for the fact that it was the author's first mystery novel.
To Thomas T. Noguchi, America’s most famous medical examiner, every death is a mystery—until the cause is found In his first book, the runaway bestseller Coroner, Dr. Noguchi wrote of his controversial investigations as medical examiner of Los Angeles County. In Coroner at Large, the man who has often been called the “Detective of Death” probes the mysteries surrounding the most celebrated criminal cases in recent American history. Using sophisticated techniques of modern forensic science and once again “telling it like it is,” Dr. Noguchi reveals the truth behind the headlines in the untimely deaths of show business celebrities: —The drowning of Beach Boy Dennis Wilson —The murder of Sal Mineo —The suicide of Freddie Prinze —The slaying of “Playmate of the Year” Dorothy Stratten —Elvis Presley’s fatal heart attack Forensic science, too, provides new clues to fascinating historical puzzles: the true fates of General George Custer, the Emperor Napoleon, and Adolf Hitler. In Coroner at Large, Dr. Noguchi brilliantly provides the missing links in our knowledge of these cases. Here, from his own investigations and his pioneering work in the field, we see forensic science in action, unraveling the mysteries of death—both natural and unnatural—in real-life cases that might have baffled even the great Sherlock Holmes.
A classic Agatha Christie short story, available individually for the first time as an ebook.
