Thirteen for the price of one

Advantages: Classic Agatha
Disadvantages: Too short

...As an avid Agatha Christie fan, I have to say that I prefer Miss Marple to the more flamboyant Poirot, although both are uttely wonderful. For Miss Marple fans, this is a real treat. At a dinner party she attends, each guest is invited to come up with ...

Pick and Mix Agatha Christie

Advantages: Short (but in no way less compelling) than the full length Christies but which will take a fraction of the time to read. dive in and out whenever you feel like a good old murder!
Disadvantages: Doesn't have the same appeal as sitting in front a roaring fire with your mug of cocco reading a full book with all the minor points left in.
