Stunning New Editions of Classic Poirot Cases

24th March 2016

From a sinister game of cards to a murder on the shores of the River Tigris, these beautiful paperback reissues take readers back through six of Hercule Poirot’s exhilarating cases.

Poirot delights in telling people that he’s the best detective in the world—but how did he make his name? In Poirot’s Early Cases, Christie turns back the clock and traces eighteen of the cases that helped Poirot establish his reputation. From there, Poirot Investigates follows our favourite detective through a collection of short stories. Death in a lock gun-room, a million dollar bond robbery, a cursed pharaoh’s tomb, a jewel heist, and many more!

Murder in Mesopotamia sees Poirot investigating an archaeological dig. When Dr Leidner’s wife, Louise, begins suffering from terrifying hallucinations, tension within the group rises to dangerous levels. Though Poirot is on his way to the excavation site, he may be too late…

Mr Shaitana is a flamboyantly infamous party host in Cards on the Table, but he’s also a man that claims murder is an art form. When Poirot accepts an invitation to view Shaitana’s private collection, he takes part in in a very dangerous game.

When an uninvited guest darkens Poirot’s doorway in The Big Four, the detective is plunged into a case of international intrigue. What is the significance of the figure 4, scribbled over and over on a sheet of paper..?

Poirot had been present when Jane bragged of her plan to ‘get rid of’ her estranged husband. Now the monstrous man was dead. And yet the great Belgian detective couldn’t help feeling that he was being taken for a ride in Lord Edgware Dies.
