A blinding snowstorm—and a homicidal maniac—traps a small party of friends in an isolated estate. Out of this deceptively simple setup, Agatha Christie fashions one of her most ingenious puzzlers, which in turn would provide the basis for The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the history of the London theater.

From this classic title novella to the deliciously clever stories that follow—solved to perfection by Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple—this rare collection of murder most foul showcases Christie at her inventive best, proving her reputation as “the champion deceiver of our time” (New York Times).

Stories in this collection include:

  • “Three Blind Mice”
  • “Strange Jest”
  • “Tape Measure Murder”
  • “The Case of the Perfect Maid”
  • “The Case of the Caretaker”
  • “The Third Floor Flat”
  • “The Adventure of Johnny Waverly”
  • “Four and Twenty Blackbirds”
  • “The Love Detectives”
