Publisher's Summary

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.

Great, even if it's a bit too familiar.

Any additional comments?

Great collection of Christie short stories. A couple that I read in earlier books, but still enjoyable. Some gems in here.

Alright but disappointing in places.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

no, too many holes and not the typical writing of Christie

Would you be willing to try another book from Agatha Christie? Why or why not?

Love Christies writing, this combination of stories was not up to par. Many of the stories seemed to end too soon, too quickly.

Did The Golden Ball and Other Stories inspire you to do anything?

Not to buy another combination book.
