London, Aug 20 (ANI): An unpublished version of Agatha Christie's Hercule Poirot detective novel has been unearthed from the archives of the writer.

The work has been compiled from 60-year-old notebooks discovered at Christie's Devon holiday home, reports the Telegraph.

The short story has been gathered from a mixture of handwritten and typed notes made by Christie in the 1930s, which lay undiscovered for decades, in a dusty cardboard box.

According to Daily Mail, Christie enthusiast and author John Curran has spent four years gathering the previously unseen Poirot story from the notes.

The Capture Of Cerberus, which is completely different to a short story with the same title published in 1947, revolves around a Nazi dictator.

It was discovered by Curran in November 2005 after he was invited to examine Christie's papers at Greenway, her holiday retreat in Devon.

Curran has also discovered an unpublished version of an existing story, The Incident Of The Dog's Ball. (ANI)
