‘In straight detective fiction there is still no-one to touch her.’ Irish Times
‘Poirot’s gorgeous self-conceit gives a dash of humour to this capital collection of mystery stories. They are ingeniously constructed, and told with an engaging lightness of style.’ Literary ReviewFrom the Back Cover:
First there was the mystery of the film star and the diamond…then came the 'suicide' that was murder…the mystery of the absurdly cheap flat…a suspicious death in a locked gun-room…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!
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 79 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.
