“The acknowledged Queen of Detective fiction”
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.
