Overview

In the world of Hercule Poirot, a movie star's visit to London turns into a quest to recover a fabulous diamond, an ordinary dinner conversation about rented flats and houses leads to the discovery of a murder, superstitious speculations over the death of an archaeologist in Egypt unravel a tale of ruthless greed, and an ordinary theft from a shop window in Bond Street entangles Poirot in an international jewel heist. With the amiable Hastings in tow, Poirot dazzles while solving an array of spellbinding riddles. In fourteen razor-sharp, engrossing episodes, Poirot apprehends the perpetrators of robberies, kidnappings, thievery, and fraud with inimitable panache and style.

The collection of superb short stories featuring Hercule Poirot and Captain Hastings...

First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond... then came the 'suicide' that was murder... the mystery of the absurdly chaep flat... a suspicious death in a locked gunroom... a million dollar bond robbery... the curse of a pharoah's tomb... a jewel robbery by the sea... the abduction of a Prime Minister... the disappearance of a banker... a phone call from a dying man... and, finally, the mystery of the missing will.

What links these fascinating cases? Only the brilliant deductive powers of Hercule Poirot!

About the Author

Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was an English author of mystery fiction whose status in the genre is unparalleled. A prolific and dedicated creator, she wrote short stories, plays and poems, but her fame is due primarily to her mystery novels, especially those featuring two of the most celebrated sleuths in crime fiction, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Ms. Christie’s novels have sold in excess of two billion copies, making her the best-selling author of fiction in the world, with total sales comparable only to those of William Shakespeare or The Bible. Despite the fact that she did not enjoy cinema, almost 40 films have been produced based on her work.
