Welcome to this fanlisting dedicated to the books of Agatha Christie related to the greatest detective of the 20th century, Hercule Poirot
Regarding of what Agatha Christie wrote, Hercule Poirot joined the Belgian Police , from 1904 to 1914, date of the German invasion in neutral Belgium. In 1916, he leaves Belgium, becomes a refugee in England and begins a long detective career, one of the longest and the most popular among the 19th end 20th centuries detectives ones. From 1916, with "The Mysterious Affair of Styles" to 1975 with "Curtain", ( written in 1940 but published in 1975 ) his last case and his death, Hercule Poirot captivated us with his "little grey cells" ... and beyond, never stop to amaze us. Poirot is remarkable for his small stature, his meticulous moustache, his dandified dressing habits, his absolute obsession with neatness, and his disdain for detective methods. He prefers to examine the psychology of a crime, once even betting that he could solve a case simply by sitting in an easy chair and using his "little grey cells" ( petites cellules grises ) !
Agatha Christie wrote 33 novels and 56 short stories where Hercule Poirot appears. While the majority of the supporting cast in the Poirot stories is always different, some characters do show up more often. Arthur Hastings, his life-long partner, the detective novelist Ariadne Oliver, Poirot's secretary Miss Lemon and the chief inspector Japp of Scotland Yard. His fictional address ( from his business card ) is : Hercule Poirot, 56B Whitehaven Mansions, Sandhurst Square, London W1, UK ...
You'll find in the Extras Pages all the titles of the novels, some of the old covers'editions and some arts and wallpapers :)

" I see you have had some tea, n'est ce pas ? You remember the Garden Fete? When I look into the future? You will permit if we do the same, please? Turn it around... no, no, no, no, no! Because this time, it is different. This time we shall look backward, yes? Into the past. Because the past, it is as clear as crystal, n'est ce pas ? As clear as the crystals of cyanide poison that are in this cup. Oh, no, no, no, monsieur, this does not shock you. For it is you who put them there! "
