Description
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 Harper Paperbacks. The Body in the Library, dressed in an evening gown and quite dead, is a stranger to the respectable Bantrys...so they invite Miss Marple into their home to investigate.
