A flawless collection of short stories that Christie herself referred to as 'light-hearted thrillers'. Twelve ingenious, witty mysteries showing the author at her best, including: the curious disappearance of Lord Listerdale, the strange meeting on a train of a feckless man and a beautiful girl, Philomel Cottage and the extraordinary country house visit of Edward Robinson. Each four-story volume is expertly narrated by Hugh Fraser. Three double-cassette packs complete this tantalising series.
