About the Author
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

I love the character of Ariadne, and her eccentricities complement Poirot's methodical and logical approach perfectly.
I am yet to read the short stories, but have read the three novels and enjoyed each one very much. I particularly liked 'Cards on the Table' as it took a slightly different approach than the usual, 'it could have been anyone'. It is clear that the murderer has to be one of four, and the intricate way in which each character is unravelled is excellent. At the beginning it appears that there is no evidence to go on at all, but it soon becomes clear that there is, in fact, a wealth of evidence available to Poirot!
This is a great collection so far, and I really look forward to reading the remainder!
The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (5/5)
Reputedly one of Christie's finest pieces of misdirection, this locked room mystery has lost none of its capacity to baffle.
Murder on the Orient Express (5/5)
Even if you know the solution (which would hardly be surprising given the fame of this story) this is an entertaining novel.
Murder in the Mews (4/5)
A novella - or perhaps long short story - with an enjoyable plot twist. Also available in "Hercule Poirot: The Complete Short Stories", so you may already own it.
Hercule Poirot's Christmas (3/5)
There's plenty to like about this locked room mystery, but its solution is somewhat unconvincing, and this is not one of the best Poirot novels.
One, Two, Buckle My Shoe (4/5)
This little-known mystery beginning with the apparent suicide of the detective's dentist is one of the darkest Poirot novels and a neglected gem.
Five Little Pigs (4/5)
Again, this novel is comparatively little-known, but features an enticingly high-concept setup. Poirot is asked to investigate a criminal case that occurred sixteen years previously based solely on the testimony of surviving participants. Like "Cards on the Table", this is a novel whose primary satisfaction is intellectual: one for the Christie connoisseur, perhaps.
Taken at the Flood (4/5)
This complex mystery follows so serpentine path that it is extremely difficult to solve more than a part of it.
