Sparkling Cyanide

Author:

Agatha Christie

Synopsis:

Six people sit down to a sumptuous meal at a table laid for seven. In front of the empty place there is even champagne in the glass. George Barton leads the toast - 'To Rosemary for remembrance' - although no one is likely to forget the night, nearly a year ago, that Rosemary Barton died at exactly the same table, her beautiful face unrecognisable, convulsed with pain and horror. But then Rosemary had always been memorable - she had the ability to arouse strong passions in most people she met. In one case, strong enough to kill...

The Labours Of Hercules

Author:

Agatha Christie

Synopsis:

In appearance Hercule Poirot hardly resembled an ancient Greek hero. Yet - reasoned the detective - like Hercules he had been responsible for ridding society of some of its most unpleasant monsters. So, in the period leading up to his retirement, Poirot made up his mind to accept just twelve more cases: his self-imposed 'Labours'. Each would go down in the annals of crime as an heroic feat of deduction.
