The Mysterious Affair at Style (by Agatha Christie)

After a break with a few contemporary and modern light novels, I returned again to try and catch up on my lack of Agatha Christie reading until this year.

'The Mysterious Affair at Styles' begins - not surprisingly - with a woman who has been murdered, presumed poisoned. Her husband seems to be both the villain of the household and the only person who could possibly benefit from her death.

But Hercule Poirot steps in to prove that the husband could not possibly have committed the crime... how he solves the murder mystery, with an entirely unexpected ending, is one of the cleverer plots.
