Three Agatha Christies collected in one thick tome that span almost thirty years. Per the jacket, Christie herself said, "Of my detective books, I think the two that satisfy me best are Crooked House and Ordeal by Innocence."

I reviewed them separately to avoid a novella length review.

This isn't quite the book I read----mine wasn't large print and contained 3 Agatha Christie books but this is the only one goodreads shows. At any rate, it's been a very long time since I read a Christie and I thoroughly enjoyed these 3. All 3 deal with a limited possibility of suspects yet I never suspected the right guy in the first one, and knew fairly late in the stories the 2nd and 3rd ones.

The Seven Dials Mystery: 8/10 Stars. I loved the secret society aspect and all the twists and never knowing who did it. I was genuinely surprised by the ending.

Crooked House: 7/10 Stars. A good ending, I didn't at all guess who the killer was, but it droned on a little.

Ordeal by Innocence: 7.5/10 Stars. The first Christie novel that I figured out who the killer was. Interesting story, definitely keeps you guessing as to who did it.

Another fantastic who-done-it by the master herself. Agatha Christie delivers all the elements of the classic mystery that made her books great. A must read for any Christie fan. In the foreward she admits this was one of her personal favorites. I can see why!

Finished The Seven Dials Mystery. Lots of suspense and red herrings, and I was fooled! Very good reading!

I have never read Agatha Christie before. Picked this one up at a used book store, and can see why she's a likeable read. Will give her more chances to impress whenever I'm looking for something light. Also, love Miss Marple pbs series- another reason I thought I'd pick up one of her books. Fun dialogue, good twists, solveable crimes...all together worthwhile.

Two out of three ain't bad. Three Christie books in one isn't a bad deal. I will review these novels separately, but quickly, Crooked House is decent, very well liked by most, but not a personal favorite; Ordeal by Innocence is very solid, but Seven Dials is on my list of "least favorite Christie stories".

I wasn't interested in the first story at all. the second story was my absolute favorite and hooked me back in. the third story was okay, but not as compelling as the one before.
