Book reviews - Double Sin

Double Sin


Author: Agatha Christie

Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot both make appearances in Agatha Christie’s Double Sin and Other Stories, a sterling collection of short mystery fiction that offers double the suspense, surprise, and fun.

In one of London’s most elegant shops, a decorative doll dressed in green velvet adopts some rather human, and rather sinister, traits.

A country gentleman is questioned about a murder yet to be committed.

While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever dared imagine possible.

In a small country church, a dying man’s last word becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.

These chilling stories, and more, cleverly wrought by master Agatha Christie and solved by the inimitable Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple.
