Overview

The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense—creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters—brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. In her classic The Pale Horse, an elderly priest is murdered, quite possibly doomed by a woman’s deathbed confession and by secrets kept safely locked behind closed doors of a mysterious local pub.

Editorial Reviews
