9780007364497: The Greenway Collection:

A special boxed set of the three Agatha Christie novels set in or around her home of Greenway House in Devon. DEAD MAN'S FOLLY: Sir George and Lady Stubbs, the hosts of a village fete, hit upon the novel idea of staging a mock murder mystery. In good faith, Ariadne Oliver, the well known crime writer, agrees to organise their murder hunt. But at the last minute Ariadne calls her friend Hercule Poirot for his expert assistance. Instinctively, she senses that something sinister is about to happen...FIVE LITTLE PIGS: Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried 'wee wee wee' all the way home. It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind...ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE: No one felt sorry when Jacko Argyle died in prison. Everyone knew he killed his mother by striking her over the head with a poker from the fire. But when a doctor turns up at the house two years afterwards with proof of Jacko's innocence, the whole family is horrified. Because it can mean only one thing - that their mother's killer is still among them...
