A flawless collection of short stories that Christie herself referred to as ‘light-hearted thrillers’.
Twelve ingenious, witty mysteries showing the author at her best, including: the curious disappearance of Lord Listerdale, the strange meeting on a train of a feckless man and a beautiful girl, Philomel Cottage and the extraordinary country house visit of Edward Robinson. Each four-story volume is expertly narrated by Hugh Fraser.
Three double-cassette packs complete this tantalising series.

Twelve tantalising cases… the curious disappearance of Lord Listerdale; a newlywed’s fear of her ex-fiancé; a strange encounter on the train; a domestic murder investigation; a mild man’s sudden personality change; a retired inspector’s hunt for a murderess; a young woman’s impersonation of a duchess; a necklace hidden in a basket of cherries; a mystery writers arrest for murder; an astonishing marriage proposal; a soprano’s hatred for a baritone; and the case of the Rajah’s emerald.
All have one thing in common: the skilful hand of Agatha Christie.
‘They are, without exception, the work of an experienced and artful cook’
