The Mysterious Affair at Styles
by Agatha Christie, 1920
Christie’s first novel, this isn’t her best. The book was more rambling and hard to follow than the other two from Christie that I have read, Murder on the Orient Express and And Then There Were None. Covers a murder of a family matriarch for her money, set in World War I.
Kyle Cattani, one of my co-authors, was left off the original announcement. I have added him below.
