Description

“And, Poirot, I'd... Thank God you came.”

We’re starting the year off with two thrilling mysteries in this Hercule Poirot double-bill!

In The Wasp's Nest, the Belgian detective comes between a bitter love triangle in the hopes of preventing a murder before it can take place. Yellow Iris brings the moustachioed sleuth to the hotel Jardin des Cygnes when a distressed phone call from a mystery woman throws up questions about a suspicious death years earlier.

These might be early Poirot cases, but they’re as intriguing and full of twists as we’d expect from Agatha Christie, aka the Queen of Crime!
