About the Book

Cover of "The Mysterious Affair at Styles. The silhouette of a man looks over a large yard to a mansion.

The Mysterious Affair at Styles introduces Hercule Poirot, Inspector (later, Chief Inspector) Japp, and Arthur Hastings. Hercule Poirot, a Belgian refugee of the Great War, is settling in England near the home of Emily Inglethorp, who helped him to his new life. His friend Hastings arrives as a guest at her home. When Mrs. Inglethorp is murdered, Poirot uses his detective skills to solve the mystery.

Styles launched Agatha Christie’s writing career. Christie and her husband subsequently named their house “Styles”. Hercule Poirot would go on to become one of the most famous characters in fiction. Decades later, when Christie told the story of Poirot’s final case in Curtain, she set that novel at Styles.

About the Mystery Book & Video Club

Since 2013, the Mystery book & video club has met monthly with the exception of June and July. The books discussed are primarily mystery novels. Some memorable authors explored have included Agatha Christie, Lee Child, Louise Penny and Ruth Rendell.
Books are selected based on geographic or historical interest, such as works by author Donna Leon whose crime novels are set in Venice, Italy and Peter Tremayne, Celtic scholar and historian whose focus is 7th century Ireland. We have had new authors discuss their writings including Paul Paradise, who writes about murder, trademark counterfeiting, and product piracy and Radha Vatsal, award winning mystery writer whose books center around a young female reporter in New York City during the 1910’s.
