Witness for the Prosecution and Other Stories is a collection of eleven tantalizing tales of murder and other criminal pursuits—including the classic title story, basis for the 1957 Oscar-nominated Billy Wilder film starring Marlene Dietrich, Tyrone Power, and Charles Laughton.

In the title story, a murder trial takes a diabolical turn when the wife of the accused takes the stand.

A woman’s sixth sense—and a loaded revolver—signal premonitions of doom …

A stranded motorist seeks refuge in a remote mansion and is greeted with a dire warning …

Detective Hercule Poirot faces his greatest challenge when his services are enlisted—by the victim—in a bizarre locked-room murder.

From the stunning title story to the rarest gems in detective fiction, these eleven tales of baffling crime and brilliant deduction showcase Agatha Christie at her dazzling best.

Included in this collection are:

  • The Witness for the Prosecution
  • The Red Signal
  • The Fourth Man
  • S.O.S.

Quotes & Awards

  • “From the unforgettable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, two crime solvers who rival the near-peerless Sherlock Holmes, to the postclimactic jolts of And Then There Were None and ‘The Witness for the Prosecution,’ Agatha Christie is in a class by herself.”

    Mary Jane Clark, New York Times bestselling author

    " I've had trouble posting reviews before, so I'm trying a different computer, and will keep it short! Thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories. They are quite varied. Con artists, liars, lovers, and the suggestion of the supernatural all play their parts. And to make Christie fans happy, the last one also has Hercule Poirot. "
