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.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.

In this book Christie shows what a versatile writer she was. There is humour and believable psychological motivations. The characters come to life on the page even though none of these stories are long. They are darker than Christie is generally thought to be. Too many people dismiss her as being a lightweight detective story writer who wrote books featuring either an eccentric and fussy Belgian detective or a prissy spinster.
Such judgements are facile in the extreme and show a lack of knowledge of the breadth and depth of her writing. It also misjudges both Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. This collection of twelve short stories would be a good introduction to Christie's work and shows her at her versatile best. Hugh Fraser is an excellent narrator in this and other audio editions of Christie's work.
Those who can do, those who can't criticize.
