Synopsis: Seven Deadly Sins -- Seven Motives For Murder. An attractive hardback of seven of the best Agatha Christie crime thrillers, themed around the timeless motives of Sin! Murder and murderers abound in this seasonal edition, filled with some of the very best murder mysteries ever written. With flawless plotting, masterful characterisation and enough twists and turns to keep even the most talented armchair detective puzzled, these stories will enthral and entertain as the reader can only sit back and marvel as avarice, sloth, gluttony, lust, pride, envy and wrath devour their victims, and their victims, one by one! THE ABC MURDERS Pride is the excessive belief in one's own abilities. A murderer has the arrogance to challenge Hercule Poirot's detective prowess! A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED Envy is the desire for another's status and abilities. A mysterious joker is eager for Miss Blacklock's money -- and her death! EVIL UNDER THE SUN Lust is the craving for the pleasures of the body. Actress Arlena Stuart has the reputation of a 'man-eater' -- until her murder! SPARKLING CYANIDE Sloth is the idle avoidance of work. Money doesn't need to be earned: it can be married, won or inherited -- so long as someone dies! ENDLESS NIGHT Avarice is the greed for material gain. Buy the perfect piece of land for your dream house -- but be wary of curses and psychopaths! AT BERTRAM'S HOTEL Gluttony is the appetite to consume more than you need. Miss Marple wonders if a series of robberies are for money -- or just the thrill! FIVE LITTLE PIGS Wrath is the fury when love is spurned. A woman is convicted of poisoning her adulterous husband -- but there are five other suspects!
