Best Answer

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.

Not really. All books follow on from one another, Hercule Poirot's follow on from one another, etc. They may have certain references to other books in, but generally no. The only book that might be considered to have a sequel is the first Hercule Poirot, 'The Mysterious Affair At Styles' The last book in the Hercule Poirot series 'Curtains: Poirot's Last Case' is also set at Styles, so I recommend that you read 'Mysterious Affair...' before you read '...Poirot's Last Case'

Books are generally dated by publication date, rather than the date they were written. Biographical information, letters etc. would be required to establish which books and plays Agatha Christie was working on during 1942. However, Agatha Christie in fact had three books published in 1942: "The Body in the Library" and "The Moving Finger" (also known as "The Case of the Moving Finger") - both featuring Miss Marple - and "Five Little Pigs" (also known as "Murder in Retrospect"), featuring Hercule Poirot.
