About: 1920s London. A shocking murder has stained the plush carpets of a handsome London townhouse. The victim is an older woman, the enormously rich Emily French. All the evidence points to Leonard Vole, a young chancer to whom the heiress left their vast fortune and who ruthlessly took her life. At least, this is the story that Emily's dedicated housekeeper Janet Mackenzie stands by in court. Leonard however, is adamant that his partner, the enigmatic chorus girl Romaine, can prove his innocence.From the stunning original story which inspired the new BBC television thriller The Witness for the Prosecution to some of the most spine-tingling gems in detective fiction, these twelve tales of baffling crime and brilliant deduction showcase Agatha Christie at her dazzling best.This collection includes an introduction by Sarah Phelps, who wrote the screenplay for the award-winning And Then There Were None and now The Witness for the Prosecution, and also Agatha Christie's Poirot and the Regatta Mystery, a story exclusive to this new edition.
