Is it a gesture of goodwill or a sinister trap that lures Rupert St. Vincent and his family to a magnificent estate? How desperate is Joyce Lambert, a destitute young widow whose only recourse is to marry a man she despises? What unexpected circumstance stirs old loyalties in Theodora Darrell, an unfaithful wife about to run away with her lover?

In this collection of short stories, the answers are as unexpected as they are satisfying. The Queen of Mystery takes bizarre romantic entanglements, supernatural visitations, and classic murder to inventive new heights.

    " These stories are more along the lines of Parker Pyne than Hercule Poirot: although in some of them crimes are committed, and there's a great case of royal misidentification, these aren't the wonderful house/hotel/train murders that Poirot does best. "

    " It's been a while since I read a Christie, and I was sure I'd read them all. I must have missed this one. It's a collection of short stories, some lighthearted and some delving into supernatural. I'd forgotten how much I loved the Dame's use of language. A refreshing read. "

    " I LOVE Agatha Christie's short stories. "

    " I'm having an Agatha Christie extravaganza, re-reading many old favorites: Halloween Party, Labors of Hercules, and Toward Zero. The Golden Ball particularly has some enchanting characters in some of the short stories. The last story in particular has been one that is very memorable for me, and I had forgotten that Christie wrote it. She was a spiritualist, so some of the stories get pretty far-fetched, but I love the first half of the book and the last story. I would recommend them to anybody, not just mystery-lovers like me. "
