Solid, Clever and Grand!

And not a formula in sight!

Snuggle down into these involving stories and go to Persia and many other exotic locations. When Dame Agatha went on holiday, she didn't fool around.

Highly recommend!

Out of order

I really enjoy Hugh Fraser and Agatha Christie in general so this combination was fantastic except that whoever ordered the chapters clearly didn’t read them because they do not make sense in this order. The Oracle at Delphi chapter clearly belongs after the chapter in which Parker Pyne states that he is going to Delphi - even considering the “twist”.
