The Murder at the Vicarage (Agatha Christie Mysteries Collection)
Perhaps more surprising than the revelation of the murderer is the detective who will crack the case: ‘a white-haired old lady with a gentle, appealing manner.’ Miss Jane Marple has arrived on the scene, and crime literature’s private men’s club of great detectives will never be the same.The murder of Colonel Protheroe — shot through the head — is a shock to everyone in St Mary Mead, though hardly an unpleasant one. Now even the vicar, who had declared that killing the detested Protheroe would be ‘doing the world at large a favour,’ is a suspect — the Colonel has been dispatched in the clergyman’s study, no less. But the picturesque English village of St Mary Mead is overpopulated with suspects. There is of course the faithless Mrs Protheroe; and there is, of course, her young lover — an artist, to boot.

THE BESTSELLING AUTHOR OF ALL TIME WITH OVER 4 BILLION COPIES SOLD!
Volume 1 of this collection contains Agatha Christie’s early including works, including her very first novel and the first introduction to Hercule Poirot in The Mysterious Affair at Styles as well as the first introduction to Tommy and Tuppance in the critically acclaimed detective novel The Secret Adversary.
THE MYSTERIOUS AFFAIR AT STYLES
The Mysterious Affair at Styles is Christie’s first published novel, and introduces Hercule Poirot, Inspector (later, Chief Inspector) Japp and Lieutenant Hastings (later, Captain). The story is told in first person by Hastings, and features many of the elements that, thanks to Christie, have become icons of the Golden Age of Detective Fiction. It is set in a large, isolated country manor. There are a half-dozen suspects, most of whom are hiding facts about themselves, and a number of red herrings and surprise plot twists.
The Times Literary Supplement gave the book an extremely enthusiastic review, which stated that “The only fault this story has is that it is almost too ingenious”. It went on to describe the basic set-up of the plot and concluded: “It is said to be the author’s first book, and the result of a bet about the possibility of writing a detective story in which the reader would not be able to spot the criminal. Every reader must admit that the bet was won”.
The New York Times Book Review was also impressed:
“Though this may be the first published book of Miss Agatha Christie, she betrays the cunning of an old hand … You must wait for the last-but-one chapter in the book for the last link in the chain of evidence that enabled Mr. Poirot to unravel the whole complicated plot and lay the guilt where it really belonged. And you may safely make a wager with yourself that until you have heard M. Poirot’s final word on the mysterious affair at Styles, you will be kept guessing at its solution and will most certainly never lay down this most entertaining book.” Poirot was described as a “delightful little old man”.
THE SECRET ADVERSARY
The Secret Adversary is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie and first published in the United Kingdom in January 1922 and in the United States later in that same year. The novel introduces the characters of Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie books and one collection of short stories written throughout her writing career.
Upon publication of the first book edition it was reviewed by The Times Literary Supplement which described it as “a whirl of thrilling adventures”. It stated that the characters of Tommy and Tuppence as “refreshingly original” and praised the fact that the “identity of the arch-criminal, the elusive “Mr Brown”, is cleverly concealed to the very end”.
The New York Times Book Review was also impressed, stating, “It is safe to assert that unless the reader peers into the last chapter or so of the tale, he will not know who this secret adversary is until the author chooses to reveal him.” The review said that Christie “gives a sense of plausibility to the most preposterous situations and developments.” Nevertheless they conceded that, “Miss Christie has a clever prattling style that shifts easily into amusing dialogue and so aids the pleasure of the reader as he tears along with Tommy and Tuppence on the trail of the mysterious Mr. Brown. Many of the situations are a bit moth-eaten from frequent usage by other writers, but at that Miss Christie manages to invest them with a new sense of individuality that renders them rather absorbing.”
Robert Barnard: “The first and best (no extravagant compliment this) of the Tommy and Tuppence stories. It tells how the dauntless pair foils a plot to foment labour unrest and red revolution in Britain, masterminded by the man behind the Bolshevists. Good reactionary fun, if you’re in that mood”.
