Harper Collins, 1961.
In one of London’s most elegant shops, a decorative doll dressed in green velvet adopts some rather human, and rather sinister, traits.
A country gentleman is questioned about a murder yet to be committed.
While summoning spirits, a medium is drawn closer to the world of the dead than she ever dared imagine possible.
In a small country church, a dying man’s last word becomes both an elegy and a clue to a crime.
These chilling stories, and more, cleverly wrought by master Agatha Christie and solved by the inimitable Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple.
