The books included in this compendium include The Murder of Roger Ackroyd, The Secret Adversary, The Boomerang Clue, The Moving Finger, Death Comes as the End. One or two of Christie's various famous sleuths feature in each book. As always, the plots were engrossing, and each one has a satisfactory denouement.

The Secret Adversary is only the second novel Christie ever published and is thus the first chronologically, but it doesn't make for a strong start. If this had been my first Christie novel, I might never have read another. This is the first "Tommy and Tuppence" adventure. Christie didn't write as many mysteries with them as Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple, but she did write several, and unlike those detectives they aged from book to book--from young twenty-something flappers to aged married partn...more
I didn't read the first and last story of the compilation, I have attempted both before and have not been able to get into them. The Boomarang Clue was probably my favorite of the two that I did read. It think that classism (is that a word) is so funny, seriously how do you judge someone by their name and not teir deeds, but it was alive and made for some funny moments in The Boomarang Clue. I think it is possible that I have read The Moving finger over twenty years ago, the plot of the poison p...more
Fantastic collection by Avenel Books of Agatha Christie stories! This collection of five are the amongst the very best of her work. I rate 5 stars individually to four of the titles, though. The best are "The Secret Adversary", "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd", "The Boomerang Clue", "The Moving Finger", and "Death Comes as the End". "Finger" is the only one I would give 3 stars to, the rest a 5. What's so great about this collection is that each story features a unique detective of Agatha's. Oh, BT...more

Five novels in one hardcover: "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd"; "The Secret Adversary"; "The Boomerang Clue"; "The Moving Finger"; "Death Comes as the End."

The first is a Hercule Poirot mystery, the second a Tommy & Tuppence, the third a regular murder mystery, the fourth another regular mystery, and the fifth is a murder mystery set in Egypt in the long-ago age from what I can tell from it.

Recommend the book for Agatha Christie fans, but I have to admit I didn't enjoy two of the novels as much...more

Agatha Christie also wrote romance novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott, and was occasionally published under the name Agatha Christie Mallowan.

Agatha Mary Clarissa Miller was born in Torquay, Devon, England, U.K., as the youngest of three. The Millers had two other children: Margaret Frary Miller (1879–1950), called Madge, who was eleven years Agatha's senior, and Louis Montant Miller (1880...more
