Description

Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot both make appearances in Agatha Christie's Double Sin and Other Stories, a sterling collection of short mystery fiction that offers double the suspense, surprise, and fun.

In one of London's most elegant shops, a decorative doll dressed in green velvet adopts some rather human, and rather sinister, traits.

A country gentleman is questioned about a murder yet to be committed.

While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever dared imagine possible.

In a small country church, a dying man's last word becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.

These chilling stories, and more, cleverly wrought by master Agatha Christie and solved by the inimitable Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple.

Back cover copy

In one of London's most elegant shops, a decorative doll in green velvet adopts some rather human, and sinister, traits. . . . A country gentleman is questioned about a murder that has yet to be committed. . . . While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever imagined possible. . . . In a small country church, a dying man's last word, sanctuary, becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.

Only the Queen of Mystery could have conceived such delicious treats for suspense lovers. Only the inimitable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple could solve them with such chilling perfection.

Review quote

"Time and again Agatha Christie pulled off what many obviously greater writers labored for in vain, a work of art which is both perfectly crafted and morally satisfying."--A. N. Wilson
