Schwarze Magie oder tödlicher Hokuspokus? Eine Reihe von Todesfällen lässt dem Historiker Mark Easterbrook, der eigentlich nur in Ruhe sein Buch schreiben möchte, keine Ruhe. Als im Schuh eines ermordeten Pfarrers eine Namensliste gefunden wird, auf der sich auch die Namen einiger kürzlich Verstorbener finden, ist er sich sicher, dass diese Menschen keineswegs eines natürlichen Todes gestorben sind. Doch welche Rolle spielt »Das fahle Pferd«, ein ehemaliger Gasthof, in dem angeblich schwarze Magie praktiziert wird? Mark Easterbrook muss dem Mörder eine gewagte Falle stellen, um ihn zu enttarnen.

"The Mysterious Affair at Styles" is a detective novel by Agatha Christie. It was written in the middle of World War I, in 1916, and first published by John Lane in the United States in October 1920 and in the United Kingdom by The Bodley Head on 21 January 1921. Styles was Christie's first published novel, introducing Hercule Poirot, Inspector (later, Chief Inspector) Japp, and Arthur Hastings. The story is told in first person by Hastings and features many of the elements that have become icons of the Golden Age of Detective Fiction, largely due to Christie's influence. It is set in a large, isolated country manor. There are a half-dozen suspects, most of whom are hiding facts about themselves. The book includes maps of the house, the murder scene, and a drawing of a fragment of a will, as well as a number of red herrings and surprise plot twists. «The Secret Adversary» is a work of detective fiction by Agatha Christie, first published in the United Kingdom by The Bodley Head in January 1922. The book introduces the characters of Tommy and Tuppence who feature in three other Christie books and one collection of short stories written throughout her writing career.

Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings travel to Merlinville-sur-Mer, France, to meet Paul Renauld, who has requested their help. Upon arriving at his home, the Villa Genevieve, local police greet them with news that he has been found dead that morning. Renauld had been stabbed in the back with a letter opener and left in a newly dug grave adjacent to a local golf course. His wife, Eloise Renauld, claims masked men broke into the villa at 2 am, tied her up, and took her husband away with them. Upon inspecting his body, Eloise collapses with grief at seeing her dead husband. Monsieur Giraud of the Sûreté leads the police investigation, and resents Poirot's involvement; Monsieur Hautet, the Examining Magistrate, is more open to sharing key information with him.
