Description

A murder trial takes a diabolical turn when the wife of the accused takes the stand. . . . A woman's sixth sense and a loaded revolver signal premonitions of doom. . . . A stranded motorist seeks refuge in a remote mansion and is greeted with a dire warning. . . . Detective Hercule Poirot faces his greatest challenge when his services are enlisted by the victim in a bizarre locked-room murder.

From the stunning title story (which inspired the classic film thriller) to the rarest gems in detective fiction, these eleven tales of baffling crime and brilliant deduction showcase Agatha Christie at her dazzling best.



Praise For The Witness for the Prosecution and Other Stories

“From the unforgettable Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, two crime solvers who rival the near-peerless Sherlock Holmes, to the post-climactic jolts of And Then There Were None and The Witness for the Prosecution, Agatha Christie is in a class by herself.”
-Mary Jane Clark, New York Times bestselling author
