9780007212613: Hound of Death and Other Stories

Murder can occur in the most unexpected places, and there are times when the spectre of death is very close - you just have to look for the signs: omens and haunted houses, seances and nightmares, split personalities and disembodied voices... Welcome to a stunning collection of macabre stories, from the earthly drama of a courtroom to the unearthly chills of the widow who can hear her husband, all evidence of a natural - or supernatural - storyteller!

About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

From Publishers Weekly:

Christopher Lee delights in his reading of Christie's stories including "The Hound of Death," "The Red Signal," "The Fourth Man," "The Gypsy," "The Lamp," and others. His solidly paced, rich, vaguely aristocratic narration captures the suspenseful spirit of these creepy-cozy mysteries, and he gives each character his or her own distinct voice and hints of emotional complexity. Lee's consumptive Annette in "The Fourth Man" and maniacal spirit voice in "The Red Signal" are both memorable and disturbing. Highly recommended and very enjoyable. (Jan.)
