More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

Product Description

Review

“They are, without exception, the work of an experienced and artful cook.”
Times Literary Supplement

“The acknowledged Queen of Detective fiction”
Observer

From the Back Cover

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’

Format: Paperback
A more than usual light-hearted blend of thrills and spills from the Queen of Crime written to appease the 1920s magazine market. Several have been filmed, including Philomel Cottage - which was first adapted as a play by Frank Vosper, retitled Love from a Stranger, and later filmed with Joan Hickson and Basil Rathbone. Swan Song is an enjoyable operatic tale of revenge. A reoccuring theme throughout several of the stories is a penniless couple forced to employ their wits to enjoy themselves when their finances don't stretch far enough - rather like the early days of Agatha and her first husband Archie. Enjoy!

Those who can do, those who can't criticize.

I love Agatha Christie she never fails to surprise. One of the few authors to have been consistantly good and still fresh after all these years.

For lovers of Agatha Christie these short stories show a different side to her writing abilities using only a few pages to draw you in and keep the suspense going you don't get the gradual build up as with her stand alone novels but do get a chance to see other aspects to her writing great for a winters evening or for those times when you want to quickly lose yourself in a story

Excellent listening. I was amazed at the marvellous reading by Hugh Fraser. It is nearly word for word as the book of the same title and a wonderful companion when alone.

30 of 39 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on 2 Oct. 2001
Format: Paperback
Agatha Christie, or a scheming publisher, has made it peculiarly difficult to provide an accurate rating for this collection of twelve short stories dominated by the themes of disguise, confusion of identity, the mingling of the genuine article and the fake. The ruse was to plant a single gem among an astonishing assortment of tales, the majority of which are nothing more than the litter of a versatile and prolific writer.
The opening story, "The Listerdale Mystery", is a pleasing little tale of an upper-class widow and her two children who have fallen on hard times. They find a benefactor in the unknown and unseen Lord Listerdale whose whereabouts and motives remain under wraps until the final page. Now, don't get too excited! For all Mrs Christie's heavy-handed hints about the peer having played an active part in some unspeakable tragedy, that he is somewhere in East Africa and may not return for many a year, Lord Listerdale is no 'drop-dead-gorgeous' aristocratic rake pursued by international paparazzi and MI5 alike. He is an altogether gentler, albeit somewhat mundane, member of the peerage, little more than a 'boy who loves to dress up'. There are endless games of dressing up in the stories that follow.
Variations on the theme of identity are an essential element in Agatha Christie's technique as a writer of classic detective fiction. However, the key difference between most of the stories in this collection and the 'Christie Classic' is that, owing to the weak interaction of theme and form, the narratives themselves have to be disguised.

This was quite a good book. It had several different stories which were fun to read. If you like mystery stories you would enjoy this book. Agatha Christie is always good to read.
