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.

This is a collection of shadow stories that Christie wrote before she wrote her classics. They are the pre stories from which the great stories came. Not bad
Great to hear Hugh Fraser, smooth voice, LOVE
Lee does an excellent job with his share of the stories and I like to hear some of the great voices reading, Heston's performance of Hemingway is phenomenal. As for these stories, I really like Witness and Mr. Eastwood's Adventure. The others are good but more of the typical Christie "formula" and these two stand out. Actually I always thought Witness was a novel and not a short so that surprised me. I always enjoy Poirot but maybe he's more fun in the novels.
