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. Like The Labors of Hercules, the twelve cases Poirot must solve in this captivating collection of short crime fiction stories are dangerous, demanding, and positively ingenious.


Praise For The Labors of Hercules

“Hercule Poirot was and is the gold standard among brilliant and quirky detectives, and the Christie touch with plot and puzzle has never been equaled, much less exceeded.”
-John Lescroart, New York Times bestselling author

“A finely shaped book, richly devious and quite brilliant—by far the best volume of Poirot shorts.”
-San Francisco Chronicle

“Twelve little masterpieces of detection. Poirot and Agatha Christie at their inimitable best.”
-Sunday Express (London)
