PHILO VANCE Philo Vance was the detective creation of S. S. Van Dine first published in the mid 1920s. Vance, in the original books, is an intellectual so highly refined he seems he might be ghostwritten by P. G. Wodehouse. Take this quote from The Benson Murder Case , 1924, as Vance pontificates in his inimitable way: "That's your fundamental error, don't y' know. Every crime is witnessed by outsiders, just as is every work of art. The fact that no one sees the criminal, or the artist,...

His team of colleagues, headed by Lennart Kollberg and Frederick Melander, are used to his stubborn ways and his frequent colds. His wife Inga isn't as...

A classic locked room mystery. A young woman is found in a locked room, half strangled, with a head wound and a discharged revolver nearby. The windows are barred and the door locked, her father being on the outside. When she recovers however, it becomes clear she knows the name of her attacker, but she will not name him. Her fiance too refuses to say, stating he'd rather go to the gallows. Honour and the family name are at stake. All a bit Victorian for my taste, but a classic tale.

A rather routine Christie tale. Hercule Poirot is on holiday on an island off the coast of Devon, surrounded by the usual cast of suspects, including the flirtatious actress Arlena Marshall who - quelle surprise - everybody knows and has cause to dislike. As night follows day, Arlena is found murdered and Poirot investigates. Despite a superior cast, the story is typical formulaic Christie.

Long lost Christie stories found! This audiobook presents two recently rediscovered Hercule Poirot short stories by Agatha Christie. The stories were found inside 73 notebooks discovered at Greenway, Christie's family home in Devon, when the archive at the National Trust property was being established. "The Mystery of the Dog's Ball" was eventually reworked into the novel Dumb Witness, but unlike other Christie short stories-turned-novels it remained unpublished. The other story,...

The novel is notable for being the first novel in the Poirot series set at least partly in the courtroom, with lawyers and witnesses exposing the facts underlying Poirot's solution to the crimes. The title is drawn from a song in Shakespeare's play  Twelfth Night . The novel was well received, even by her usual critic, who said "Elegiac, more emotionally involving than is usual in Christie, but the ingenuity and superb clueing put it among the very best of the classic titles."...

Arlena Marshall is a beautiful woman known for her affairs with men, both before and during her marriage. While on holiday at the Jolly Roger Hotel on England's South Coast, she openly cavorts with Patrick Redfern while her husband and his wife watch helplessly. Tragedy is...

Like  The Secret Adversary ,  The Man in the Brown Suit  is less a novel of pure detection than it is a thriller typical of its period. It follows the adventures of Anne Beddingfeld as she becomes involved in a world of diamond thieves, murderers, and political intrigue in this tale set in exotic South Africa.  Colonel Race  makes his first appearance in the novel; he later appears in  Cards on the Table , Sparkling Cyanide , and  Death on the Nile .

A comical take on an Agatha Christie short story. "Do you want an adventure?" the advert asked. "We can promise you that for just £199." A meek mannered man cannot resist the opportunity tohave an adventure for once in his life......
