Agatha Christie is the world's most popular writer in modern times and her books have only been outsold by the Bible and Shakespeare. Best remembered for such classic crime novels as Murder on the Orient Express, And Then There Were None, and Death on the Nile, her works have been cherished by generations of readers. Christie, however, was also a master of the shorter crime story and this volume collects some of her finest short stories. Each of these thirty-nine stories features one of Christie's famous detectives - Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, Parker Pyne, and Harley Quin - in some of their most baffling and intriguing cases, as these ingenious Christie tales show how satisfying and compelling the crime short story can be.
