Tragedy strikes at the estate at Styles. An old woman dies from what appears to be strychnine poisoning. The funny little Belgian, Hercule Poirot, is called in to investigate, though he appears to disregard every bit of damaging evidence. Has the great detective lost his touch?

I love Agatha Christie's work, but was unimpressed by the reader. B.J. Harrison read expressively, but his Poirot accent must've been inspired by Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau! When he pronounced "voila" as "VIOLA," I had to throw up my hands.
I first heard The Mysterious Affair at Stiles on the Classic Tales Podcast--am super glad that it was available on Audible. Love the story and really enjoy BJ Harrison as a narrator.
