A podcast episode a couple of months short of 100 years in the making, we are here today to discuss The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920) by Agatha Christie.
We’ve discussed The Eye of Osiris (1911) by R. Austin Freeman in spoiler-rich detail, so it’s time to make new plans.
Every post could be someone’s first post, so just in case you’re new here: this post today is rich in spoiler-heavy details about the novel The Eye of Osiris, a.k.a. The Vanishing Man (1911) by R. Austin Freeman. Read on only if you don’t mind having plot details discussed. Do not assume I’m going to be vague and mindful of avoiding spoilers.
Well, c’mon — lucky number 13. Something had to go wrong, didn’t it?
This post serves a double purpose: firstly to reassure you that the promised spoiler-heavy discussion about The Box Office Murders, a.k.a. The Purple Sickle Murders (1929) by Freeman Wills Crofts is on the way, and secondly to let you know about the next spoiler-heavy review coming in April.
Brad and I are done dissecting Agatha Christie’s final work Postern of Fate (1973), so it’s time to make spoiler-filled plans for another piece of detective fiction and, well, can you guess which one it will be…?
Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today to discuss Postern of Fate (1973), the final novel written by Agatha Christie, and will be doing so in full, spoiler-rich detail. Read no further unless you’re willing to be spoiled on this, probably the most-disregarded book in Dame Agatha’s oeuvre.
With the most recent Spoiler Warning post now out in the wild — it’s on The Moving Toyshop (1946) by Edmund Crispin if you’re interested — it’s time to prepare for the next.
