Hercule Poirot is Agatha Christie's primary detective, appearing in over 30 books. He was born in Belgium and has worked as a Belgian police officer, but moved to England after the war and started a second career as a private detective.

He meets what turns out to be a life-long partner, Arthur Hastings, almost immediately after arriving to England. The books take us through the whole of his England living, from the first book (The Mysterious Affair at Styles), where he is a refugee staying at Styles, to the last Poirot book (/Curtain), where he stays at Styles once again.

He is also in many books accompanied by the detective novelist Ariadne Oliver.
