Anne Beddingfeld observes a deadly accident and believes she has witnessed a murder. Impulsively following a chain of clues, Anne uncovers a sinister collection of plotters with a potentially lethal intolerance for the amateur sleuth. When a man dies in an apparent accident in a London tube station, Anne Beddingfeld notices the suspicious actions of a mysterious man in a brown suit. A second death that is seen as connected to the first by no one other than herself, puts Anne on the trail of the buried truth. Clues will drive her, alone, on a quest for justice that will result in her passage on a cruise ship bound for South Africa, and a chain of confrontations with a merciless band of professional thieves. This stand-alone novel, first published in 1924, shows Agatha Christie experimenting a little by both stepping away from her already established detective hero, Hercule Poirot, and blending stronger elements of the international thriller into her story. Replete with stolen diamonds, undercover agents, an exotic island hideaway and a steadfast heroine desperately trying to survive and make sense of it all, The Man in the Brown Suit remains one of the author’s most spellbinding tales. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of The Man in the Brown Suit is both modern and readable.

International intrigue leads to murder at an English manor house in this classic mystery introducing the detection skills of Superintendent Battle. Never do favors—that’s the lesson it would’ve behooved Anthony Cade to learn before getting himself wrapped up in a case of conspiracy and murder. Politician George Lomax has persuaded Lord Caterham to host a weekend party at Chimneys, his country estate. Lomax hopes to cement plans to reinstate the monarchy in Herzegovina. But when the prince of Herzegovina turns up dead, Cade has a lot of explaining to do. After all, his footprints were found on the grounds . . . though not inside the house. As one criminal conspiracy leads to another, both Scotland Yard and the French Sûreté are on the scene to set things right. Soon, thanks to the detective work of Superintendent Battle, everyone’s secrets—and the secret of Chimneys itself—will be on display.

“Part murder mystery and part mind-bending time-travel story. . . . Full of imagination” (Booklist). Say you’re a time traveler and you’ve already toured the entirety of human history. After a while, the world might lose a little of its luster. That’s why this time traveler celebrates his birthday partying with himself. Every year, he travels to an abandoned hotel in New York City in 2071, the hundredth anniversary of his birth, and drinks twelve-year-old Scotch (lots of it) with all the other versions of who he has been and who he will be. Sure, the party is the same year after year, but at least it’s one party where he can really, well, be himself. The year he turns thirty-nine, though, the party takes a stressful turn. Before he even makes it into the grand ballroom for a drink he encounters the body of his forty-year-old self, dead of a gunshot wound to the head. As the older versions of himself at the party point out, the onus is on him to figure out what went wrong—he has one year to stop himself from being murdered, or they’re all goners. As he follows clues that he may or may not have willingly left for himself, he discovers rampant paranoia and suspicion among his younger selves, and a frightening conspiracy among the Elders. Most complicated of all is a haunting woman, possibly named Lily, who turns up at the party this year—the first person he’s ever seen there besides himself. For the first time, he has something to lose. Here’s hoping he can save some version of his own life. “A clever enough premise that it could be straight out of a Philip K. Dick or Kurt Vonnegut novel.” —Pittsburgh Post-Gazette “A dark hybrid of Paul Auster and the film Memento, complete with a mysterious love interest . . . Best of all, however, is the evocation of mid-21st century New York as a melancholy, dilapidated place high in entropy, cluttered with ruined buildings, and weirdly infested with parrots.” —Toronto Star

Here is a sparkling collection of mystery gems, polished puzzlers from the pen of Agatha Christie starring the vain, eccentric and utterly brilliant Hercule Poirot. Hercule Poirot grapples with a chain of mysteries that challenge his ingenuity and display the author’s wide-ranging imagination to fine effect. Herein the detective deals with the theft of a gem said to have been the eye of a mysterious idol, a million dollars in bonds that disappear from a locked case, jewel thieves who have conceived of a seemingly impossible theft, and even the kidnapping of the Prime Minister of England. Poirot uses deduction, deception and isn’t above creating illusions to reveal a killer, but his foes are often both more unusual and more dangerous than simple murderers. He finds himself battling spies, masters of disguise and even trying to thwart a supposed Egyptian curse. Upon the initial appearance of Poirot Investigates in 1924 reviewers were impressed by the author’s ability to create a complete, thoroughly conceived mystery with a surprising but logical solution inside a tight package of perhaps four thousand words. For the next fifty years, writing at any length that took her fancy, Christie would continue to produce some of the finest mysteries ever written. With an eye-catching new cover, and professionally typeset manuscript, this edition of Poirot Investigates is both modern and readable.

Literature is the biographical window to the human experience. It has no geographical, political, cultural, or religious boundaries. Nothing can stop it from penetrating the most intimate crevices of life--no matter how insignificant. Literature allows the reader to listen in (eavesdrop) to the gossip of life: the frustrations, hopes and dreams, triumphs and defeats of the characters who attempt to uncover the meaning of the tragic sense of life.
