Editorial Reviews

Dorothy L. Sayers
“A brilliantly ingenious story.”
Lawrence Block
“It’s tempting to say that Agatha Christie is a genius and let it go at that, but the world’s had plenty of geniuses. Agatha Christie is something special.”
Time Magazines Literary Supplement (London)
"Need it be said—the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end."
New York Herald Tribune
“Nothing short of swell. [Christie] is probably the best suspicion scatterer and diverter in the business.”
Times Literary Supplement (London)
“Need it be said—the little grey cells solve once more the seemingly insoluble. Mrs Christie makes an improbable tale very real, and keeps her readers enthralled and guessing to the end.”
Chicago Daily Tribune
“[Moves] smoothly and entertainingly to its surprise conclusion.”
New York Times
“What more…can a mystery addict desire?”
Library Journal
These are the initial eight volumes in what will grow to 24 over two years in Black Dog's new "Agatha Christie Collection." The books are all decent-quality hardcovers for a bargain price. If you're regularly replacing your Christies, gives these more durable editions a try. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
