Publisher's Summary

Two best-selling Agatha Christie novels in one great audiobook

The Mysterious Affair at Styles - Hercule Poirot solves his first case in the Agatha Christie novel that started it all. 

Who poisoned the wealthy Emily Inglethorp and how did the murderer penetrate and escape from her locked bedroom? Suspects abound in the quaint village of Styles St. Mary - from the heiress' fawning new husband to her two stepsons, her volatile housekeeper, and a pretty nurse who works in a hospital dispensary. With impeccable timing, and making his unforgettable debut, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot is on the case.

The ABC Murders - Agatha Christie's beloved classic The ABC Murders sets Hercule Poirot on the trail of a serial killer. 

There’s a serial killer on the loose, working his way through the alphabet and the whole country is in a state of panic. A is for Mrs. Ascher in Andover, B is for Betty Barnard in Bexhill, C is for Sir Carmichael Clarke in Churston. With each murder, the killer is getting more confident - but leaving a trail of deliberate clues to taunt the proud Hercule Poirot might just prove to be the first, and fatal, mistake.

Delightful storytelling at its best

Surprises at every turn as is typical of Christie. Hugh Fraser does an excellent job of reading and making each character come alive, especially our favorite hero.

Accented perfection

Agatha Christie’s books are undeniably well written, so the potential weak link is the narration. But, Hugh Fraser’s Hercule Poirot is sublime. Also, I was right there with Hastings, and could feel his exasperation with his odd, annoying, but brilliant friend as they worked through two mysteries. Even with the twists and turns, this was easy listening. Comfort food for the ears!

Double dose of Hugh Fraser!

I was not familiar with either of these works, and found them thoroughly captivating.

The Beginning of Something Beautiful

I particularly love the introduction of characters, it's a really important and can easily be messed up. One of the best aspects about Poirot is his outrageous appearance and mannerisms. Though what keeps you is his ORDER and METHOD, his two Gods. I love the contrast between Hastings and Poirot, how they play off of each other. Another aspect of Agatha Christie's books is the time period, you can't get away from that. It's so interesting how similar and different the this period was to present day. You can understand the motivations and desires of the characters while also noting the how the customs and social expectations of the day shape the way they act. It's kind of funny what passes as a bold independent woman in the 1920's.
