The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding
by Agatha Christie
Crime | Classics | 363 Pages | Published by Harper in 2002
“Then once more his eyes returned to Northway House, relic of an earlier age – an age of space and leisure, when green fields had surrounded its well-bred arrogance. Now it was an anachronism, submerged and forgotten in the hectic sea of modern London, and not one man in fifty could have told you where it stood.”
~ p. 283, The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding by Agatha Christie
| Synopsis |
An English country house at Christmas time should be the perfect place to get away from it all – but nothing is ever simple for Hercule Poirot, as he finds not one but five baffling cases to solve.
First comes a sinister warning on his pillow to avoid the plum pudding… then the discovery of a corpse in a chest… next, an overheard quarrel that leads to murder… the strange case of a dead man’s eating habits.. and the puzzle of a victim who dreams of his own suicide.
And an extra bonus – Miss Marple investigates Greenshaw’s Folly.
Agatha Christie’s seasonal Poirot and Marple short story collection, reissued with a striking new cover designed to appeal to the latest generation of Agatha Christie fans and book lovers.
