Like many of her contemporaries, Agatha Christie wrote stories for a variety of magazines in the 1920s and '30s, and most of these eventually found their way into her books of short stories. Now, many years after her death, detective work worthy of Agatha Christie herself has unearthed "new" stories, most of which have never been published anywhere in the world since their original appearances.In this new collection, the author observes the tragic flaws in human nature, providing a glimpse of the Queen of Crime in the making. Anyone who has ever read or listened to Agatha Christie will enjoy every story for her skill at characterisation and her ability to deliver an unexpected twist in the tail.
