- (short extra reading ...)
... During World War I, while she was working in a Red Cross Dispensary in her hometown, Christie gained knowledge of both medicines and poisons, and that inspired her to write her first mystery novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920). It featured a Red Cross Hospital and--naturally--a poisoning. It also introduced her famous Belgian detective, Hercule Poirot, whose pompous and eccentric nature would make him one of the most enduring figures in mystery literature. Poirot appeared in over thirty of Christie's books, including The Murder on the Orient Express (1934) and The A.B.C. Murders (1935).
