A brand new omnibus featuring Agatha Christie's favourite characters: Messrs Quin and Satterthwaite.
Harley Quin is an enigma. He appears and disappears unexpectedly - and usually by strange tricks of the light caused by stained-glass windows or flickering firelight. His background, family and friends are all a mystery - his almost supernatural powers of detection are, however, very real.
Mr Satterthwaite is altogether more normal - fundamentally a snob, he lives the carefree lifestyle of a bachelor whilst indulging his hobbies. Yet, beneath this facade is a deep vein of loneliness that compels him to observe everyone and everything.
Together they are an unstoppable, crime-fighting tour de force - Sattherthwaite's skills of observation are honed by Quin's subtle questioning, bringing to light the most pertinent clues in any crime. With each acting as a catalyst for the other, the criminal fraternity had best beware . . .
This volume brings all the Quin and Satterthwaite novels and short stories together for the first time, and showcases the pair's talents in a way that clearly explains why Agatha Christie herself was so fond of her creations: "The Love Detectives".
