Marking exactly 100 years since Agatha Christie wrote THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES, this special edition brings together the first Poirot novel with her last, and includes new cover paintings by Tom Adams, special introductions, and a unique letter from Hercule Poirot himself never before published in the UK. CURTAIN, written 25 years later but not published until 1976, takes the elderly Belgian detective and his old friend Captain Hastings back to Styles, the rambling country house where they solved their first murder together - and where history seems determined to repeat itself. CURTAIN was the last Poirot novel until Sophie Hannah's hugely successful continuation novels, THE MONOGRAM MURDERS and CLOSED CASKET. This limited edition boxed set includes: * A unique pull-out letter written by Agatha Christie in 1936 in which Hercule Poirot introduces himself to his editor, never before published outside the USA * A newly discovered article by Agatha Christie, Drugs and Detective Stories, written for University College Hospital Magazine in 1941, in which she reminisces about the inspiration for her first book * Agatha Christie's original unpublished courtroom ending to The Mysterious Affair at Styles, introduced by Christie expert Dr John Curran * Brand new cover paintings and an introduction by Tom Adams, Christie's celebrated cover artist from the 1960s onwards… (mais)

This book club edition collects the first and last Hercule Poiroit novels. A deliberate bookend, Curtain, the last novel, is set at the same location, as The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the first novel, is a first-person narrative from the same character, Arthur Hastings, and makes frequent references to the first novel.

As a moderate mystery fan but not a reader of many Christie novels,I was not that impressed. Set in the Holmes / Watson mold, Hastings is such a stooge in both books that it's frustrating to watch him interact with characters so naively. Poirot comes across not just as over-impressed with his abilities, which would be fine, but as mocking and dismissive of Hastings. So many of their interactions are basically "so, I gave you the clues, didn't you see them? I knew you wouldn't".

The mysteries themselves are technically well put-together, with the usual red herrings and puzzle pieces that seem unrelated but make sense when combined.

OK but I've enjoyed the television and movie adaptations more. ( )

Very well written. ( )

I thoroughly enjoyed these two Poirot mysteries. I found it interesting that the publishers chose to put Curtain before Mysterious Affair at Styles in the book, since Curtain is the last Poirot story and Styles is the first. Lots of fun, as one can always expect from Dame Agatha! ( )

One of the few authors I'm able to go back and read over and over. Always a great story! And always well-written. I have a bent towards those featuring Poirot. ( )

Launched me on my love of mysteries - especially those by Agatha Christie. Collected them all during middle and high school! ( )
