Includes some reprints of early stories published in magazines. A must for true fans of Dame Agatha.

There are 9 stories in this collection. 8 of them are wonderful; classic Agatha Christie! The last story, "The Harlequin Tea Set," was very dull and anti-climactic. Overall this book was great and is definitely worth reading.

Nine short stories, including one each featuring Poirot and Harley Quin. All are quick reads that hold your interest.

I have to admit this mystery was okay but not one of my favorite Agatha Christie's. 'The Harlequin Tea Set' was not my cup of tea, so to speak :)

From the book back:
A priceless treasure for collectors and fans, "The Harlequin Tea Set" brings together nine brilliant Christie stories that have remained long out of print - until now. In "The Mystery of the Spanish Chest," featuring Hercule Poirot, the legendary detective unravels the psychological conundrums that motivate a killer. In "The Edge", a woman must decide whether to follow her heart or her conscience. And in "The Harlelquin Tea Set," Mr. Harley Quin, another of Cristie's famed detective, helps a man save his loved ones from the greedy hand of murder. These and six other suspenseful stories complete this stellar collection.

"The Harlequin Tea Set and Other Stories" is a treat for any Christie fan. These stories are ample proof - if further proof were needed - of the mastery she brough to her credit." ---Richmond Times-Dispatch
