So my recent posts for this meme have largely been about authors that I "discovered" in that year.
By 1992 I was already a committed reader of Agatha Christie novels and short stories.
In the last 3 years I have been gradually re-reading Agatha Christie novels in order of publication (through the Agatha Christie Reading Challenge), and short stories as they come to hand.
MURDER IN THE MEWS is a collection of four novellas that I read about this time in 1992.
It was first published in the UK by Collins Crime Club on 15 March 1937. In the U.S., the book was published by Dodd, Mead and Company under the title Dead Man's Mirror in June 1937 with one story missing (The Incredible Theft)
The four novellas are
- Murder in the Mews
- The Incredible Theft
- Dead Man's Mirror
- Triangle at Rhodes
One of the fascinating things about titles that have been published many times are the very varied style of covers used.
