The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense--creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters--brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. Time is ticking away for a murderer in Christie's classic, The Clocks, as Poirot investigates the strange case of a corpse surrounded by numerous timepieces in a blind woman's house.
