The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense — creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters — brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to audio.

Witness for the Prosecution and Other Stories is a collection of eleven tantalizing tales of murder and other criminal pursuits — including the classic title story, basis for the 1957 Oscar-nominated Billy Wilder film starring Marlene Dietrich, Tyrone Power, and Charles Laughton.

In the title story, a murder trial takes a diabolical turn when the wife of the accused takes the stand.

Read for fun and in the process learn from the master This is a collection of short stories by herself, the world’s best selling mystery writer. The lead story, The Witness for the Prosecution, a masterpiece, runs only 29 pages and has all the plot elements of both the movie and the play. The movie and the play elaborate on these by introducing a greater complexity and an extraordinary ending, which I will not spoil for you. Some of the stories are quite good. Others are quite bad. Particularly good are the logical and eerie ones concerned with…

love Agatha Christie Not your typical mystery in a few of the short stories, makes you think, re-read, and still wonder if your missing something. While others are your straight forward who done it. I personally enjoy the stories with the twists, trying to re-read them and trying to find the clues to help you the reader interpret the ending!May not be for all, but I am all for it.

I love Agatha Christie I love Agatha Christie, and especially her well written short stories.I thought I had read all of her short stories, but most of these were new to me.This is a collection of her very early short mystery stories, mostly written in the 1920s, and they are all very good. Only one, the last one which was written in the 1930s, features one of her famous detectives, Poirot. Some deal with the supernatural. All are interesting and well written.
