Today’s Free eBook of the Day is The Mysterious Affair At Styles by Agatha Christie.

This whodunnit from the classic detective novel author takes place in the English countryside. Here is an excerpt: “The intense interest aroused in the public by what was known at the time as ‘The Styles Case’ has now somewhat subsided. Nevertheless, in view of the world-wide notoriety which attended it, I have been asked, both by my friend Poirot and the family themselves, to write an account of the whole story. This, we trust, will effectually silence the sensational rumours which still persist.”
