The Greenway Collection: Dead Man's Folly, Five Little Pigs, Ordeal By Innocence
A special boxed set of the three Agatha Christie novels set in or around her home of Greenway House in Devon. DEAD MAN'S FOLLY: Sir George and Lady Stubbs, the hosts of a village fete, hit upon the novel idea of staging a mock murder mystery. In good faith, Ariadne Oliver, the well known crime writer, agrees to organise their murder hunt. But at the last minute Ariadne calls her friend Hercule Poirot for his expert assistance. Instinctively, she senses that something sinister is about to happen... FIVE LITTLE PIGS: Beautiful Caroline Crale was convicted of poisoning her husband, yet there were five other suspects: Philip Blake (the stockbroker) who went to market; Meredith Blake (the amateur herbalist) who stayed at home; Elsa Greer (the three-time divorcee) who had roast beef; Cecilia Williams (the devoted governess) who had none; and Angela Warren (the disfigured sister) who cried `wee wee wee' all the way home. It is sixteen years later, but Hercule Poirot just can't get that nursery rhyme out of his mind... ORDEAL BY INNOCENCE: No one felt sorry when Jacko Argyle died in prison. Everyone knew he killed his mother by striking her over the head with a poker from the fire. But when a doctor turns up at the house two years afterwards with proof of Jacko's innocence, the whole family is horrified. Because it can mean only one thing - that their mother's killer is still among them...

The Complete Miss Marple: Volume 1 - The Early Years
Six complete and unabridged Agatha Christie novels read by Joan Hickson and Stephanie Cole, perfect whether you've been a fan of Miss Marple for years or are just starting to discover her now for the first time. The Murder at the Vicarage - read by Joan Hickson It was a careless remark for a man of the cloth. And one which was to come back and haunt the clergyman just a few hours later. From seven potential murderers, Miss Marple must seek out the suspect who has both motive and opportunity. The Body in the Library - read by Stephanie Cole It's seven in the morning. The Bantrys wake to find the body of a young woman in their library. She is wearing evening dress and heavy make-up, which is now smeared across her cheeks. The respectable Bantrys invite Miss Marple to solve the mystery... before tongues start to wag. The Moving Finger - read by Joan Hickson Lymstock is a town with more than its share of shameful secrets - a town where even a sudden outbreak of anonymous hate-mail causes only a minor stir. But all that changes when one of the recipients, Mrs Symmington, commits suicide. Her final note said `I can't go on'. A Murder is Announced - read by Joan Hickson The villagers of Chipping Cleghorn, including Miss Marple, are agog with curiosity over an advertisement in the local gazette which reads: `A murder is announced and will take place on Friday October 29th, at Little Paddocks at 6.30 p.m.' Unable to resist the mysterious invitation, a crowd begins to gather at the appointed time when, without warning, the lights go out... They Do It With Mirrors - read by Joan Hickson Miss Marple senses danger when she visits a friend living in a Victorian mansion which doubles as a rehabilitiation centre for delinquents. Her fears are confirmed when a youth fires a revolver at the administrator, Lewis Serrocold. Neither is injured. But a mysterious visitor, Mr Gilbrandsen, is less fortunate... A Pocket Full of Rye - read by Joan Hickson Sipping tea in his `counting house' Rex Fortescue suffers an agonising and sudden death. On later inspection, the pockets of the deceased were found to contain traces of cereals. Yet, it was the incident in the parlour which confirmed Miss Marple's suspicion that here she was looking at a case of crime by rhyme...

The Complete Miss Marple: Volume 2 - The Later Years
Six complete and unabridged Agatha Christie novels read by Joan Hickson and Stephanie Cole, perfect whether you've been a fan of Miss Marple for years or are just starting to discover her now for the first time. 4:50 from Paddington - read by Joan Hickson For an instant the two trains ran together, side by side. In that frozen moment, Elspeth witnessed a murder. Helplessly, she stared out of her carriage window as a man remorselessly tightened his grip around a woman's throat. The body crumpled. Then the other train drew away. But who, apart from Miss Marple, would take her story seriously? The Mirror Crack'd from Side to Side - read by Joan Hickson One minute, silly Heather Badcock had been gabbling on at her movie idol, the glamorous Marina Gregg. The next, Heather suffered a massive seizure. But for whom was the deadly poison really intended? A Caribbean Mystery - read by Joan Hickson As Miss Marple sat basking in the Caribbean sunshine she felt mildly discontented with life. True, the warmth eased her rheumatism, but here in paradise nothing ever happened. Eventually, her interest was aroused by an old soldier's yarn about a strange coincidence. Infuriatingly, just as he was about to show her an astonishing photograph, the Major's attention wandered. He never did finished the story... At Bertram's Hotel - read by Stephanie Cole When Miss Marple comes up from the country for a holiday in London, she finds what she's looking for at Bertram's Hotel: traditional decor, impeccable service and an unmistakable atmosphere of danger behind the highly polished veneer. Nemesis - read by Joan Hickson In utter disbelief Miss Marple read the letter addressed to her from the recently deceased Mr Rafiel - an acquaintance she had met briefly on her travels. Recognising in Miss Marple a natural flair for justice, Mr Rafiel had left instructions for her to investigate a crime after his death. The only problem was, he had failed to tell her who was involved or where and when the crime had been committed. Sleeping Murder - read by Stephanie Cole Soon after Gwenda moved into her new home, odd things started to happen. Despite her best efforts to modernise the house, she only succeeded in dredging up its past. Worse, she felt an irrational sense of terror every time she climbed the stairs...

The World's Favourite: And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, The Murder of Roger Ackroyd
A boxed set of the three books that have been confirmed in a popular vote as the World's Favourite Agatha Christie novels. In a worldwide poll to mark the Queen of Crime's 125th birthday on 15 September 2015, three books stood out as clear favourites amongst Christie fans past and present. And Then There Were None, Agatha Christie's 1939 standalone novel, was voted the World's Favourite Christie, collecting 21% of more than 15,000 votes cast. The runners up were Murder on the Orient Express with 15% and The Murder of Roger Ackroyd - one of Christie's personal favourites - with nearly 10%. Voters were asked to choose their favourite title from the full Christie canon via www.worldsfavouritechristie.com And Then There Were None was Agatha Christie's most successful book. With over 100 million copies sold worldwide, it is also the bestselling crime novel of all time. Called `Agatha Christie's masterpiece' (Spectator) and the `most baffling mystery Agatha Christie has ever written' (New York Times), it was famously difficult to write. Christie said she liked it for its `difficult technique which was a challenge'. In And Then There Were None, ten strangers are invited to Soldier Island, an isolated rock near the Devon coast. Cut off from the mainland, with their generous hosts Mr and Mrs U.N. Owen mysteriously absent, they are each accused of a terrible crime. When one of the party dies suddenly they realise they may be harbouring a murderer among their number. The other two books see the Belgian detective Hercule Poirot facing two of his most challenging cases: In Murder on the Orient Express, an American millionaire dies of multiple stab wounds on a snowbound train bound for Paris, and in The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, a wealthy widower is stabbed to death in his study, the sensational book that made Agatha Christie a household name.
