Popis zboží - Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly
As a favour to an old friend, Hercule Poirot finds himself at a summer fete in Devon, taking part not in a Treasure Hunt, but a Murder Hunt, in this never-before-published novella version of Dead Mans Folly. Now released for the first time in print in this illustrated collectors edition.
Sir George and Lady Stubbs, the hosts of a village fete, hit upon the novel idea of staging a mock murder mystery. In good faith, Ariadne Oliver, the well known crime writer, agrees to organise their murder hunt. But at the last minute Ariadne calls her friend Hercule Poirot for his expert assistance. Instinctively, she senses that something sinister is about to happen
In 1954, Agatha Christie wrote this novella with the intention of donating the proceeds to a fund set up to buy stained glass windows for her local church at Churston Ferrers, and she filled the story with references to local places, including her own home of Greenway. But having completed it, she decided instead to expand the story into a full-length novel, Dead Mans Folly, which was published two years later, and donated a Miss Marple story (Greenshaws Folly) to the church fund instead.
Unseen for sixty years, Hercule Poirot and the Greenshore Folly is finally published in this collectors hardback edition. The book includes a jacket painting, illustrations and exclusive introduction by Tom Adams, Agatha Christies most famous cover artist, who is back illustrating Agatha Christie for the first time in more than 30 years.
