It’s 1919. Tommy and Tuppence are charming, broke, and in desperate need of work. They decide to set up Young Adventurers Ltd. – “willing to do anything, go anywhere”. They are soon caught up in a dastardly plot to overthrow the British government.
The Mysterious Affair at Styles
The very first Hercule Poirot novel! When Emily Inglethorpe dies suspiciously after marrying a man twenty years her junior, her nephew, Captain Hastings, recruits his old friend Hercule Poirot to help in the investigation.
