    Book details

Agatha Christie’s classic short story collection, published to tie-in with a new BBC TV adaptation of the book’s most enduring and shocking thriller, The Witness for the Prosecution.

1920s London. A murder, brutal and bloodthirsty, has stained the plush carpets of a handsome London townhouse. The victim is the glamorous and enormously rich Emily French. All the evidence points to Leonard Vole, a young chancer to whom the heiress left her vast fortune and who ruthlessly took her life. At least, this is the story that Emily’s dedicated housekeeper Janet Mackenzie stands by in court. Leonard however, is adamant that his partner, the enigmatic chorus girl Romaine, can prove his innocence.

Review Text

  • By Ron Scot on 3 August 2017

    Some clever stories, though the short format meant the solutions were fairly easily found. The title story was the best of the bunch and the only disappointment was the Hercule Poirot story, only because he wasn’t much involved, though the solution was typically Hercule.

    What a superb read. The recent TV production errs from the story and is all the worse for it. A masterclass in a short story!

  • By H D. Steel on 9 March 2017

    There are some excellent and ingenious stories here but the quality is not always high. Even the marvellous Mrs Christie didn't write a winner every time. All the same, this collection is definitely worth buying to dip into if you like classic mystery.

    Read these many years ago. Was good to revisit them and to enjoy again the inginuity of 's Christie"s mind.

  • By Sarah on 6 March 2017

    This is a collection of enjoyable short crime stories with a twist at the end. Includes a couple of Poirot short stories.

    All written on a small typewriter; and they sold in millions!

    Loved re-reading The Witness for the Prosecution but the other short stories which were included were really great - all riveting reads.
