Poirot Investigates (King's Classics)
Poirot Investigates is a collection of eleven short stories involving the famed eccentric detective, Hercule Poirot. The problems Poirot unravels are skilfully tangled, and unravelled by the detective's omniscient genius. Throughout the tales, which include The Adventure of the Western Star, The Adventure of the Egyptian Tomb, and The Kidnapped Prime Minister, Poirot must solve a variety of mysteries involving greed, jealousy, and revenge.
Hercule Poirot is one of Agatha Christie's most famous and long-running characters. Poirot is most things that the conventional sleuth is not. He is witty, gallant, transparently vain, and the adroitness with which he solves a mystery has more of the manner of the prestidigitator than of the cold-blooded, relentless tracker-down of crime of most detective stories. He has a Gallic taste for the dramatic, and is convincing in the manner in which he lights upon a clue and follows it up.
