The new-look series of Hercule Poirot books for the 21st century. As instructed, stenographer Sheila Webb let herself into the house at 19 Wilbraham Crescent. It was then that she made a grisly discovery: the body of a dead man sprawled across the living room floor. What intrigued Poirot about the case was the time factor. Although in a state of shock, Sheila clearly remembered having heard a cuckoo clock strike three o'clock. Yet, the four other clocks in the living room all showed the time as 4.13. Even more strangely, only one of these clocks belonged to the owner of the house...

About the Author

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Agatha Christie is by far my favorite mystery author. Her books are always classics, and just about any of them are a good read. I would recommend "The Clocks" for anyone who likes Agatha Christie or Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I would give "The Clocks" 4 stars out of a possible 5 stars.

Sheila Webb, a typist-for-hire, arrives at her new job to find a well-dressed corpse surrounded by six clocks. Four of them are stopped at 4:13, and one of them, a leather clock embossed with the name "Rosemary" soon disappears. And unfortunately, the blind mistress of number 19 Wilbraham Crescent never saw a thing. Luckily the retired Hercule Poirot has nothing but time to piece together one of the most baffling puzzles of his career.
