THE SECOND IN THIS SERIES OF AGATHA CHRISTIE OMNIBUSES CONTINUES WITH HER 1920S NOVELS
THE MAN IN THE BROWN SUIT
Anne Beddingfield holds the clue to a mystery. With the strange scrap of paper she discovered she can forge a link between a diamond robbery, an accidental death, a London tube station – and a murder in a remote country mansion.
THE SECRET OF CHIMNEYS
Little did Anthony Cade suspect that a simple errand on behalf of a friend would make him the centrepiece of a murderous international conspiracy. Someone would stop at nothing to prevent the monarchy being restored in faraway Herzoslavakia. The combined forces of Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté can do no better that go in circles – until the final murder at Chimneys, the great country estate that yields up an amazing secret.
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…the curse of a Pharaoh's tomb…a jewel robbery by the sea…the abduction of a Prime Minister…the disappearance of a banker…and, finally, the mystery of the missing will. What links these, and three other cases? Only the brilliant deductive powers of Hercule Poirot.About the Author:
