Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Christie's wildly unconventional investigator, Parker Pyne, all make appearances in The Regatta Mystery and Other Stories--a riveting collection of short stories featuring a host of murderous crimes of passion, pleasure, and profit.

There's a body in a trunk; a dead girl's reflection is caught in a mirror; and one corpse is back from the grave, while another is envisioned in the recurring nightmare of a terrified eccentric. What's behind such ghastly misdeeds? Try money, revenge, passion, and pleasure. With multiple motives, multiple victims, and multiple suspects, it's going to take a multitude of talent to solve these clever crimes.
