The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie Book Resume:

Voted by the British Crime Writers’ Association as the "Best Crime Novel of all Time" Hercule Poirot comes out of retirement in one of Agatha Christie’s ten favorite novels, The Murder of Rojer Ackroyd. Roger Ackroyd knew too much. He knew that the woman he loved had poisoned her brutal first husband. He suspected also that someone had been blackmailing her. Then, tragically, came the news that she had taken her own life with an apparent drug overdose. However the evening post brought Roger one last fatal scrap of information, but before he could finish reading the letter, he was stabbed to death. Luckily one of Roger’s friends and the newest resident to retire to this normally quiet village takes over—none other than Monsieur Hercule Poirot.

Poirot Investiages by Agatha Christie Book Resume:

Here is a sparkling collection of mystery gems, polished puzzlers from the pen of Agatha Christie starring the vain, eccentric and utterly brilliant Hercule Poirot. Hercule Poirot grapples with a chain of mysteries that challenge his ingenuity and display the author’s wide-ranging imagination to fine effect. Herein the detective deals with the theft of a gem said to have been the eye of a mysterious idol, a million dollars in bonds that disappear from a locked case, jewel thieves who have conceived of a seemingly impossible theft, and even the kidnapping of the Prime Minister of England. Poirot uses deduction, deception and isn’t above creating illusions to reveal a killer, but his foes are often both more unusual and more dangerous than simple murderers. He finds himself battling spies, masters of disguise and even trying to thwart a supposed Egyptian curse. Upon the initial appearance of Poirot Investigates in 1924 reviewers were impressed by the author’s ability to create a complete, thoroughly conceived mystery with a surprising but logical solution inside a tight package of perhaps four thousand words. For the next fifty years, writing at any length that took her fancy, Christie would continue to produce some of the finest mysteries ever written. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Poirot Investigates is both modern and readable.

Soon to be a major motion picture sequel to Murder on the Orient Express with a screenplay by Michael Green, directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh alongside Gal Gadot and Armie Hammer—coming October 23, 2020! Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries.

A girl who had everything . . . until she lost her life.

A sweeping mystery of love, jealousy, and betrayal, Death on the Nile is one of Christie’s most legendary and timeless works. “Death on the Nile is perfect.” —The Guardian “One of her best. . . .

Sherlock Holmes e l'avventura dell'anello mancante by David Marcum Book Resume:

Giallo - racconto lungo (38 pagine) - Il detective di Baker Street deve vedersela con le torbide trame del governo inglese La scomparsa di un antico reperto porta Sherlock Holmes e Watson a scoprire le trame che si nascondono dietro al governo inglese dove non sempre tutto è come sembra e ogni mezzo è lecito per tutelare il proprio paese dalle minacce presenti e future. David Marcum ha iniziato a studiare la vita di Sherlock Holmes e del Dr Watson, nel 1975, all’età di dieci anni, quando, trattando con un amico uno scambio di romanzi degli “Hardy Boys”, serie di romanzi gialli destinati agli adolescenti di vari autori che si firmano con lo pseudonimo collettivo Franklin W. Dixon, ha ricevuto in regalo (e neanche troppo gradito) una copia integrale de Le avventure di Sherlock Holmes. Poco tempo dopo, ha visto in televisione Sherlock Holmes: notti di terrore, versione cinematografica di Uno studio in nero di Ellery Queen e ha iniziato a cercare altre storie di Sherlock Holmes, le originali come anche gli apocrifi. Ha acquistato, quindi, una copia dell’edizione Doubleday di The Complete Sherlock Holmes e l’ha divorata in una notte. Per Natale, i genitori gli hanno regalato Holmes of Baker Street di Baring-Gould, segnando così il suo destino. Da quel momento, ha iniziato a leggere e collezionare migliaia di apocrifi holmesiani: romanzi, racconti, episodi radiofonici e televisivi, film e sceneggiature, fumetti, fanzine e manoscritti non pubblicati. In aggiunta, ha iniziato a leggere quelli che considerava i classici della letteratura poliziesca: Nero Wolfe, Ellery Queen, Hercule Poirot, Perry Mason e Solar Pons che è considerato il logico erede di Sherlock Holmes. È autore di The Papers of Sherlock Holmes, vol. 1 e 2 (2011, 2013), Sherlock Holmes and a Quantity of Debt (2013) e Sherlock Homes – Tangled Skeins (2015). Ha curato, inoltre, la raccolta in tre volumi Sherlock Holmes in Montague Street (2014), in cui ha riadattato i racconti con Martin Hewitt protagonista di Arthur Morrison come avventuri di Sherlock Holmes antecedenti a quelle create da Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Più recentemente, nel 2015, ha iniziato una serie antologica, The MX Book of New Sherlock Holmes Stories, che, anno dopo anno, si sta arricchendo di nuovi contenuti. Ha contribuito con racconti e saggi alle più importanti riviste sherlockiane. Quando non è immerso nelle avventure dei suoi eroi giovanili, Marcum esercita la professione di ingegnere civile. Vive in Tennessee con la moglie e un figlio. È membro di The Sherlock Holmes Society of London, The John H. Watson Society (“Marker”), The Praed Street Irregulars (“The Obrisset Snuff Box”), The Solar Pons Society of London, The Occupants of the Full House, (affiliate a The Baker Street Irregulars) e di The Diogenes Club West (East Tennessee Annex), una curiosa associazione non ufficiale. Dall’età di sedici anni indossa tutto l’anno il berretto da cacciatore di cervi e, nel 2013, è riuscito a coronare il sogno di raggiungere l’Inghilterra e Baker Street.
