Five early stories unpublished since their first magazine appearances in the ’20s and ’30s, finally unearthed 21 years after Agatha Christie’s death, already showing the deft touch of the Queen of Crime in the making.

While the Light Lasts
The Actress
The House of Dreams
The Edge
Within a Wall

Like many of her contemporaries, Agatha Christie wrote stories for a variety of magazines in the 1920s and ’30s, and most of these eventually found their way into her books of short stories. Now, 21 years after her death, detective work worthy of Agatha Christie herself has unearthed ‘new’ stories, most of which have never been published anywhere in the world since their orginal appearances.

In this new collection the author observes the tragic flaws in human nature, providing a glimpse of the Queen of Crime in the making. Anyone who has ever read Agatha Christie will enjoy every story for her skill at characterisation and her ability to deliver an unexpected twist in the tail…
