Fictional detective Hercule Poirot is on the case again in a long-lost story being published today. Agatha Christie's "The Incident of the Dog's Ball" will be published in "The Strand Magazine" some 30 years after she wrote it. Christie died in 1975 at 85 years of age., one year after writing the story. The five-thousand word manuscript for "Dog's Ball" was found in Christie's attic by her daughter in 2004.  It made its print debut in Britain in September.  The New York-based "Strand" is a recreation of a popular magazine in 19th Century Britain that first published Sherlock Holmes stories.
