On an isolated island, ten people have been brought together to be killed off. An evil old woman has a rendezvous with death in the desert heat of Jerusalem. A scheming wife testifies against her husband in a shocking murder trial. And a homicidal maniac terrorizes a group of snowbound guests to the refrain of "Three Blind Mice."
This collection of eight works shows how Agatha Christie's plays are as compulsive as her novels, with their colorful characters and ingenious plots providing yet more evidence of her mastery of the detective thriller.
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in one hundred foreign countries. She is the author of eighty novels and short-story collections, nineteen plays, and six novels under the name Mary Westmacott. She died in 1976.
“Read Agatha Christie’s books once again and catch glimpses of that most elusive, most reclusive author. Read for her heart—it’s there to find.”
-Carolyn Hart, Agatha Award-winning author of the Death on Demand mysteries
“The cleverest murder mystery of the British theater.”
-Daily Telegraph (London) on The Mousetrap
