Calling all mystery fans! Let's solve it together.
The Mystery Book Club meets the second Tuesday of every month in the Library's reading lounge. Copies of the book can be signed out at the library (we have extras!) and then meet with Corrie to chat about the book (and other favourite mysteries).
Agatha Christie’s first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, was the result of a dare from her sister Madge who challenged her to write a story. The story begins when Hastings is sent back to England from the First World War due to injury and is invited to spend his sick leave at the beautiful Styles Court by his old friend John Cavendish. Here, Hastings meets John’s step-mother, Mrs. Inglethorpe, and her new husband, Alfred. Despite the tranquil surroundings, Hastings begins to realize that all is not right. When Mrs. Inglethorpe is found poisoned, suspicion falls on the family, and another old friend, Hercule Poirot, is invited to investigate.(AgathaChristie.com)
