The inimitable Agatha Christie intrigues, surprises, and delights with The Mysterious Mr. Quin--a riveting collection of short stories centered around the enigmatic Harley Quin, whose unpredictable comings and goings are usually a good indication that something is about to happen...and rarely for the best.

It had been a typical New Year's Eve party. But as midnight approaches, Mr. Satterthwaite--a keen observer of human nature--senses that the real drama of the evening is yet to unfold. And so it proves when a mysterious stranger knocks on the door. Who is this Mr. Quin?

Mr. Satterthwaite's new friend is an enigma. He seems to appear and disappear almost like a trick of the light. In fact, the only consistent thing about him is that his presence is always an omen--sometimes good, but sometimes deadly. . . .
