Descripción del producto
‘The acknowledged queen of detective fiction’
Reseña del editor
This collection of short stories from the undisputed Queen of Crime, perfectly illustrating the incredible breadth of the author’s talent; from sinister murder mysteries to light-hearted romances.
All great crime writers have their favourite creations. Similarly, every great sleuth has his, or her, own preferred method of deduction.
Take the charming Parker Pyne, who relies upon an intuitive knowledge of human nature to solve the Problem at Pollensa Bay. Or Mr Satterthwaite, who seeks inspiration through his collaboration with the enigmatic Mr Quin in The Harlequin Tea Set mystery. Then, of course, there’s Poirot, whose measured analysis of motive and opportunity is tested to the full in Yellow Iris, when he receives an anonymous call about a matter of life and death.Ver Descripción del producto

One of the standout stories in the collection is "The Mystery of the Bagdad Chest" in which the body of a man is discovered inside a chest the morning after a party had been held in the same room. As he suspected his wife of having an affair with the man throwing the party, plenty of people have motive for murder, but only Hercule Poirot can discover the true culprit. Another Poirot standout is "The Dream", in which an odd and reclusive millionaire has a recurring dream in which he commits suicide. He calls in Poirot to help him figure out what to do, but Poirot is stumped. When the man turns up dead in exactly the same fashion in which he dreamed, Poirot knows that it was not suicide, but murder. Parker Pyne deals with cases of unhappiness - helping a mother prevent her son from marrying a young woman she dislikes and clearing a likely suspect of a jewel theft, while Miss Jane Marple relates a story that stumped the police about an innocent husband who is certainly going to be charged with his wife's murder.
Many stories feature Christie's trademark twists in plotting, however, several are also predictable and easy to solve. Yet that does not detract from one's ability to enjoy them or to appreciate the genius behind them, especially since a few stories are truly mind boggling. Those are ones that only a genius like Hercule Poirot could figure out and that the queen of mystery could write.
