Overview

Agatha Christie is the most popular mystery writer of all time. With over two billion copies of her books in print, her genius for detective fiction is unparalleled. She is truly the one and only Queen of Crime... There's a body in a trunk, a dead girl's reflection caught in a mirror, one corpse back from the grave, and another envisioned in the recurring nightmare of a terrified eccentric. What's behind such ghastly misdeeds? Try money, revenge, passion, and pleasure. With multiple motives, multiple victims, and multiple suspects, it's going to take a multitude of talent to solve these clever crimes. In this inviting collection, Agatha Christie enlists the services of her finest - Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, and Mr. Parker Pyne - and puts them each to the test in the most challenging cases of their careers.

Editorial Reviews

Times Literary Supplement
The clues are placed with impeccable fairness, and the solution will cause many readers to kick themselves.
Daily Mail (London)
“Poirot solves another exciting case.”
Elizabeth George
“What Agatha Christie taught me was all about the delicate placement of the red herring. She was the ultimate genius behind ‘by indirections shall we find directions out.’”
