There's a body in a trunk; a dead girl's reflection is caught in a mirror; and one corpse is back from the grave, while another is envisioned in the recurring nightmare of a terrified eccentric. What's behind such ghastly misdeeds? Try money, revenge, passion, and pleasure. With multiple motives, multiple victims, and multiple suspects, it's going to take a multitude of talent to solve these clever crimes.

In this inviting collection, Agatha Christie enlists the services of her finest—Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Parker Pyne—and puts them each to the test in the most challenging cases of their careers.

Review: The Regatta Mystery and Other Stories (Miss Marple mix 7)

User Review  - Mary Ann - Goodreads

A collection of short stories, some of which involve Christie sleuths Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and the curious Mr. Parker Pyne, a character who seems to be more famous for solving interpersonal problems than murders. A light read and great fun. Read full review
