Description


Agrand treasure for fans of the grande dame of mystery, The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories brings together nine rare and brilliant Christie tales of murder and detection that span nearly half a century of her storytelling genius.

In "The Mystery of the Spanish Chest," Hercule Poirot unravels the psychological conundrums that motivate a killer. . . . In "The Actress," a great star's shady past becomes the plaything of a blackmailer. . . . In "The Harlequin Tea Set," Mr. Harley Quin helps a man save his loved ones from the greedy hand of murder. These and six other stories of danger and detection complete this truly stellar collection.

About the Author


The Guinness Book of World Records lists Christie as the best-selling novelist of all time. Her novels have sold roughly 2 billion copies, and her estate claims that her works come third in the rankings of the world's most-widely published books, behind Shakespeare's works and the Bible.

Praise For…


“There are no original mystery plots. Christie devised all of them first, and the rest of us borrow from her.”
-Mary Daheim, USA Today bestselling author of the Bed-and-Breakfast mysteries

“A treat for any Christie fan....These stories are ample proof—if further proof were needed—of the mastery she brought to her craft.”
-Richmond Times-Dispatch
