A murder trial takes a diabolical turn when the wife of the accused takes the stand. . . . A woman's sixth sense--and a loaded revolver--signal premonitions of doom. . . . A stranded motorist seeks refuge in a remote mansion and is greeted with a dire warning. . . . Detective Hercule Poirot faces his greatest challenge when his services are enlisted--by the victim--in a bizarre locked-room murder.
From the stunning title story (which inspired the classic film thriller) to the rarest gems in detective fiction, these eleven tales of baffling crime and brilliant deduction showcase Agatha Christie at her dazzling best.
About the Author
Agatha Christie is the best-selling author of all time. She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books. Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages. She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature--Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple--and author of "The Mousetrap", the longest-running play in the history of modern theatre. Christie was born in Torquay, Devon in 1890. She died in 1976 in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
“From the unforgettable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, two crime solvers who rival the near-peerless Sherlock Holmes, to the post-climactic jolts of And Then There Were None and The Witness for the Prosecution, Agatha Christie is in a class by herself.”
