What I actually want to read is SPARKLING CYANIDE (aka REMEMBERED DEATH), but this is the only format it is available in through my library.
This anthology consists of
seven of the best Agatha Christie crime thrillers, themed around the timeless motives of Sin!
Some I have already read as you can see.
But given the weight of the volume, I may just read SPARKLING CYANIDE this time.
- THE A.B.C. MURDERS
Pride is the excessive belief in one's own abilities. A murderer has the arrogance to challenge Hercule Poirot's detective prowess!
- A MURDER IS ANNOUNCED
Envy is the desire for another's status and abilities. A mysterious joker is eager for Miss Blacklock's money -- and her death!
- EVIL UNDER THE SUN
Lust is the craving for the pleasures of the body. Actress Arlena Stuart has the reputation of a 'man-eater' -- until her murder!
- SPARKLING CYANIDE
Sloth is the idle avoidance of work. Money doesn't need to be earned: it can be married, won or inherited -- so long as someone dies!
- ENDLESS NIGHT
Avarice is the greed for material gain. Buy the perfect piece of land for your dream house -- but be wary of curses and psychopaths!
- AT BERTRAM'S HOTEL
Gluttony is the appetite to consume more than you need. Miss Marple wonders if a series of robberies are for money -- or just the thrill!
- FIVE LITTLE PIGS
Wrath is the fury when love is spurned. A woman is convicted of poisoning her adulterous husband -- but there are five other suspects!
