Having been an Agatha Christie fan for many many years, I keep this book on my bedside table, and it is ideal to read a complete story, or two, before 'lights out'. Every story has a twist at the end, and even the very short stories keep you guessing until the last sentence, It's ideal for train journeys too.( just mind you don't miss your stop).. People not familiar with her books will soon be hooked after starting to dabble between these pages. Enjoy !!
