Aug. 22 2011 Hercule Poirot Mysteries
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. When Lord Edgware Dies a most unnatural death, detective Poirot must solve a most confounding conundrum: if the obvious killer, the slain peer’s spiteful wife, didn’t do it, who did?

Product Description


“Any mystery writer who wants to learn how to plot should spend a few days reading Agatha Christie. She’ll show you everything you want to know.” (Donna Leon, international bestselling author of the Commissario Guido Brunetti mysteries)

“The whole case is a triumph of Poirot’s special qualities.” (Times Literary Supplement (London))

From the Back Cover

When Lord Edgware is found murdered thepolice are baffled. His estranged actress wife wasseen visiting him just before his death andHercule Poirot himself heard her brag of herplan to “get rid” of him.

But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? It’s a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.

Poirot and Hastings are enjoying an evening at the theater, watching the newest darling of the stage and her one-woman show of impersonations. Soon afterwards Poirot is approached by another famous actress, Jane Wilkinson, for help with a small problem, she would like to be rid of her husband, Lord Edgware. If Poirot could perhaps convince the gentleman to finally consent to a divorce it would be greatly appreciated otherwise she just might have to kill Lord Edgware herself! Poirot reluctantly agrees to take on this uncharacteristic task (perhaps Hastings is not the only one with a weakness for a beautiful woman!) and finds that the gentleman is quite ready to divorce his wife. All is well until Lord Edgware is murdered.
Poirot begins to ferret out the murderer and soon discovers that there were many who would like to see Lord Edgware dead. The detective is lead down many blind alleys until a chance remark leads him to the truth.
This was an immensely popular book when it was first published in 1933 and has held up quite well in the intervening 70 years. It is interesting to read this book and the one following, WHY DIDN'T THEY ASK EVANS? to see how Christie could take a simple phrase and turn it into two totally different stories.

4.0 out of 5 stars Twists and Turns Dec 22 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lord Edgware Dies is a blunt, accurate title but that is only the beginning. Before the mystery is complete, a couple of more people will die in one of Agatha Christie's most interesting early novels. In addition to the larger than usual body count, the number of red herrings is tremondous, bordering at times on outrageous. The solution, though, is perfectly Christie. I had a good suspicion of who was responsible but never did figure out the how, although it all comes together so smoothly you will wonder why you missed the obvious. Poirot is in fine form. There is also a joy in reading of the lords and ladies mixing with actors and actresses (two sets which are favourites of Christie and with which she writes so engagingly). A fine mystery.

By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lord Edgware Dies is considered what is called a 'classic Christie mystery'--meaning that is has a nice manor house with a body and no limit of suspects. There's no exotic twist or fleeing of the heroine to some faraway island. This is just a cut, dried, and hung plot.
Agatha puts you in the position of suspecting a few certain people. You become positive that you've at last unmasked the ending, but it just isn't so. In fact, Christie reverses the rule of the least-suspected person being the murderer. After all, if you immediately suspect the inconspicuous person, doesn't that then make them conspicuous? Enough. But anyway, Lord Edgware Dies is a good mystery and has a nice ending. It's all you can ask for in that department.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE PERFECT CRIME EXCEPT... Aug. 27 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
...for the eye glasses forgotten in the possesions of the second victim. Such a small clue would be overlooked by everyone except Hercule Poirot. Even though he refers to their impotance throughout the book,I certainly could not deduce who on earth could have left them where they did. Kudos again to Ms. Christie for yet another classic of the genre
