There is 39 Poirot novels, plus four collections of short stories, making a grand total of 43 books to feature the character. The first Poirot book ''The Mysterious Affair at Styles'', Agatha Christie's first novel, was first published in 1920, and the 39th and last novel, ''Curtain'', was published some four decades later in 1975, and was Christie's second to last novel published.

Note that ''Black Coffee'' was originally a play by Christie and was novelised by Charles Osborne.
