Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Hercule Poirot’s ability to crack the thorniest criminal cases with unparalleled savoir-faire has made Dame Agatha Christie’s brilliant sleuth the most-watched detective in the history of the PBS Mystery! series and a resounding hit on A&E. Set in the summer of 1917, "The Mysterious Affair at Styles" follows the war-wounded Hastings (Hugh Fraser) to the Styles St. Mary estate of his friend John Cavendish. The Cavendish household is wrought with tension due to the marriage of John’s widowed mother to a suspicious younger man. In the village, Hastings runs into his old friend Hercule Poirot (David Suchet), a famous Belgian police detective. When the estate’s trouble turns deadly, the friends unite to solve a most baffling case. Special DVD features and extras include interactive menus, scene index, biographies of Agatha Christie and David Suchet, Poirot trivia, cast filmographies, and Agatha Christie materials.
