Hickory Dickory Dock (Paperback)
The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense--creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters--brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. A most unusual series of crimes at a student hostel intrigues Inspector Poirot in Christie's Hickory Dickory Dock, especially when a simple case of kleptomania paves the way to murder.
“When it comes to fiendish plotting, there’s nobody to compare with Agatha Christie.”
-Peter Robinson, New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Banks novels
“The Christie fan of longest standing, who thinks he knows every one of her tricks, will still be surprised by some of the twists here.”
-New York Times
“The characters are as good as ever and there is plenty of entertainment.”
-Times Literary Supplement (London)
