WHILE THE LIGHT LASTS

A macabre recurring dream… revenge against a blackmailer… jealousy, infidelity and a tortured conscience… a stolen gemstone… the haunting attraction of an ancient relic… a race against time… a tragic love triangle… a body in a box… an unexpected visitor from beyond the grave…

Nine quintessential examples of Agatha Christie's brilliance are contained in this new collection of early short stories – including the very first one she ever wrote – and provide a unique glimpse of the Queen of Crime in the making.

'Agatha Christie' was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 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.

AGATHA CHRISTIE FANS WILL ENJOY EVERY STORY FOR HER SKILL AT CHARACTERISATION AND HER ABILITY TO DELIVER AN UNEXPECTED TWIST IN THE TAIL…
