11 short stories without Poirot or Marple Each story herein, except “The Second Gong”, has also appeared in either _The Hound of Death_ or _The Listerdale Mystery_. Some of the stories are fantasy fiction rather than mysteries, but don’t be *too* quick to assign supernatural causes to anything.

Satisfying Short Sagas of Surprise and Suspense Anyone familiar with the 1957 Billy Wilder film “Witness for the Prosecution” knows the plot of the title story. The short story, however, is told from an entirely different vantage point. The change in focus doesn’t rob the story of any of its sting, and the product is every bit as entertaining as the excellent movie.

IMPRESSIVE This is the best of Christie’s short stories. They are ingenious works with quick and instant gratification, sometimes the best for those who can’t wait. Of course there are a couple of bummers, but if you need short stories these are the best you can get. Philomel Cottage is one I would recommend leaving the lights on for. That thing haunted me for days to come!
