Agatha Christie created magnificent works of suspense for the theater, and eight of her riveting stage dramas are collected in The Mousetrap and Other Plays—including the title piece, the longest running play in history, still a smash hit in London's West End after 60 years! On an isolated island, ten people have been brought together to be killed off. An evil old woman has a rendezvous with death in the desert heat of Jerusalem. A scheming wife testifies against her husband in a shocking murder trial. And a homicidal maniac terrorizes a group of snowbound guests to the refrain of "Three Blind Mice." This collection of eight works proves that Agatha Christie's plays are as compulsive as her novels, with their colorful characters and ingenious plots providing yet more evidence of her mastery of the detective thriller. Includes: And Then There Were None, Appointment with Death, The Hollow, The Mousetrap, Witness for the Prosecution, Towards Zero, Verdict, and Go Back for Murder.

Hercule Poirot ermittelt nicht nur im Orientexpress ... Der Fahrplan stimmt, der Zeitplan auch. Poirot reist an die Riviera – natürlich mit dem Luxuszug von Calais über Paris nach Nizza. Auch die reiche amerikanische Erbin Ruth Kettering fährt mit dem »Blauen Express«, doch als der Schaffner in Nizza an ihr Abteil klopft, findet er eine Leiche. Ein perfekter Mord – so scheint es. Doch eine kleine Unstimmigkeit lässt Hercule Poirots kleine graue Zellen nicht mehr ruhen: Die Frage nämlich, warum das Gesicht der jungen Frau entstellt wurde.

Bis der Faden reißt » ›Shelley, Liebes, du brauchst keine Angst zu haben. Er will nur Geld. Wenn wir tun, was er sagt, lässt er uns in Ruhe und geht wieder.‹ Ich glaubte ihr nicht. Ihre zitternden Hände und ihre Stimme verrieten mir, dass sie es selbst nicht glaubte. Wenn eine Katze ins Mauseloch eindringt, lässt sie die Mäuse nicht ungeschoren davonkommen. Ich wusste, wie die Geschichte enden würde.« Shelley und ihre Mutter waren zu lange einfach zu nett. Klassische Opfer, die sich nach massivem Mobbing wie Mäuse fühlen. Sie verkriechen sich in einem abgelegenen Haus auf dem Land, um ihre Probleme hinter sich zu lassen. Sie sind glücklich in ihrer kleinen Welt mit Büchern, Musik und häuslichen Ritualen. Doch eines Nachts werden sie in ihrem neu gefundenen Frieden bedroht: Ein Mann dringt in ihr Haus ein. Und bei Shelley reißt der Faden. Was dann passiert, zerstört alle Gewissheiten.

Late one night, the residents of Styles wake to find Emily Inglethorp dying of what proves to be strychnine poisoning. Hastings, a houseguest, enlists the help of his friend Hercule Poirot, who is staying in the nearby village, Styles St Mary. Poirot pieces together events surrounding the murder. On the day she was killed, Mrs Inglethorp was overheard arguing with someone, most likely either her husband, Alfred, or her stepson, John. Afterwards, she seemed quite distressed and, apparently, made a new will - which no one can find. She ate little at dinner and retired early to her room with her document case. The case was later forced open by someone and a document removed. Alfred Inglethorp left Styles earlier in the evening and stayed overnight in the nearby village, so was not present when the poisoning occurred. No one knows exactly when or how the strychnine was administered to Mrs Inglethorp... Get Your Copy Now.

“The least likely person is the killer, and no one is really who they seem.” So Jordan Hope tells his cast as they prepare to rehearse Agatha Christie’s The Mousetrap . However, Jordan does not realize that, nearby, in the snowy streets of Gastown, a real murder has taken place. By the time the show is over, another will die and The Agatha Principle will strike again. In her fourth book featuring the Beary family, Elizabeth Elwood delivers another thoroughly satisfying collection. “The Agatha Principle” is followed by seven cleverly crafted shorter stories with a variety of settings. In “The Man in the Cage”, a child falls into deadly peril at the 2010 Winter Olympics; a dramatic historical mystery dating back to the War of 1812 is featured in “Tragedy at The Oaks”, and the book closes on a delightfully light-hearted note as the Bearys visit Vancouver’s Bright Nights and solve “The Mystery of the Christmas Train”. With intriguing puzzles to challenge the reader and an engaging story of a charming heroine whose relationship with a Vancouver detective is as captivating as the cases they solve together, The Agatha Principle and Other Mystery Stories is a must for lovers of classic mystery fiction.
