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
