The brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot makes his unforgettable debut in Jon Jory's dynamic adaptation of Agatha Christie's first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles.

Poirot, a Belgian refugee of the Great War, is settling in a small village in England near the remote country manor of Emily Inglethorp, a friend who assisted him in starting his new life. Poirot's friend, Hastings, arrives as a guest at her home. When Emily is killed, Poirot uses his detective skills to solve the mystery of who killed her! Was it her fawning new husband, Alfred; her volatile housekeeper, Dorcas; her companion, Evelyn Howard; or was it Cynthia Murdoch, the pretty nurse who works in a nearby hospital dispensary? Plot twists and red herrings abound in this dynamic and engaging new adaptation of Agatha Christie's first novel.
