While most of the stories are nominally set in the year of publication, in practice they all take place in the time of the GenteelInterbellumSetting. Of Christie's series detectives, only the Beresfords age in real time. Poirot and Marple both begin as elderly characters and over the course of Christie's 56-year career, age roughly 20 years at most. (This matches a line from the final Poirot novel ''{{Literature/Curtain}}'', in which it is stated that it has been "over twenty years" since the first adventure, ''Literature/TheMysteriousAffairAtStyles'', which came out in 1920 and was set during World War 1.)

** ''Literature/DeathInTheClouds'' (1935)



** ''Death in the Clouds'' is a more subtle example. Jane Grey and Norman Gale met at the casino and is immediately attracted to one another, though they spend more time afterwards getting to know each other.

Added DiffLines:

* HeroicRussianEmigre: Agatha had quite conservative political views, typical for her epoch: she disliked Bolshevism and tended to portray post-1917 Russian emigres in a generally sympathetic light. They include Vera Rossakoff, Literature/HerculePoirot's only acknowledged love interest, and Princess Natalia Dragomiroff from ''Literature/MurderOnTheOrientExpress'' [[spoiler:who was a {{Vigilante}} seeking to avenge [[WouldHurtAChild the murder of a child]], and was acquitted by Poirot.]]
