Teaser Tuesday is the weekly meme used to tantalize you with a book I’m reading. I’ll give you two sentences and see if I can tempt you into wanting to read it too. Here are my two teasers:
“Yes, exactly – of course – The young man hesitated, and then his agitation was too much for him. He clutched Poirot by the arm, and sank his voice to a whisper: “Just tell me this, Mr. Poirot, it isn’t – it isn’t strychnine, is it?”

Where am I? I’m at a country estate in Essex, visiting an old friend and his extended family. It’s a pleasant place but I have a strange premonition. Something just doesn’t feel right. Well, if anything goes wrong I can always call on my friend, Hercule Poirot.
You guessed it – also from Agatha Christie’s The Mysterious Affair at Styles. This is Mrs. Christie’s first published novel and thus the first Hercule Poirot novel. I’ve embarked on a challenge to read all the Christie books in order of publication. No time limit.
