Armchair Fiction MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES & THE SECRET ADVERSARY

Armchair Fiction presents Mammoth Mystery Double Classics—featuring illustrated editions of two all-time mystery-crime standards, with 440 pages or more of whodunit thrills. This double novel features two classics by the queen of murder mysteries, Agatha Christie. The first tale is a Hercule Poirot thriller, “The Mysterious Affair at Styles.” There were not less than seven people at the fashionable Styles estate in Essex who might have felt a certain degree of comfort if Emily Inglethorp were more dead than alive. There were not less than seven motives and no fewer than seven apparently foolproof alibis when the wealthy lady was found murdered in her bed. So this led to the ultimate question—had the perfect crime been committed? Left to less perceptible eyes than those of the scrupulous M. Hercule Poirot, a monstrously malignant murderer might have gone unpunished. But slowly and surely, Poirot, the master Belgian detective, began to carve a path toward the identity of the killer. “The Mysterious Affair at Styles” marked the first appearance of Agatha Christie’s beloved Belgain sleuth, Hercule Poirot. Over the years, Christie’s dogged passion for detail and her cool perception of character made her an unparalleled creator of literary crime. Our second Christie tale is another great one, “The Secret Adversary.” Tommy Beresford and Prudence “Tuppence” Cowley are unemployed, broke, and seeking some adventure in their young lives. A chance meeting between these two old friends becomes a destined partnership when they create “The Young Adventurers, Ltd.,” where they are “willing to do anything, and go anywhere.” But they seem destined to get more excitement than bargained for when the duo is asked to take on the case of the missing Jane Finn, whose disappearance with highly secretive government papers spells potential disaster! Twists and turns abound with Tommy and Turppence on the case, as they soon find more thrills and danger than they ever dreamed of. Joined by American millionaire Julius P. Hershimmer, they follow the clues into a mystery embroiled with wartime intrigue, murder, and the sinister Mr. Brown.
