A collection of Agatha Christie's stories of the macabre and the occult, where a message from beyond the grave unmasks an insane killer, and a nun has the power to cause a landslide - all bound in a cover designed in the striking new Christie livery.
A dog-shaped gunpowder mark; an omen from 'the other side'; a haunted house; a chilling seance; a case of split personalities; a recurring nightmare; an eerie wireless message; an elderly lady's hold over a young man; a disembodied cry of 'murder'; a young man's sudden amnesia; a levitation experience; a mysterious SOS.
Twelve unexplained phenomena with no apparent earthly explanation . . . To discover the answers, delve into the supernatural storytelling of Agatha Christie.
An interesting collection
This is an interesting little collection of Agatha Christie short stories. Some of them are very formulaic and obvious but others, like the title story the Hound of Death, could have happily been expanded to a full length book. The style of many of the stories is quite different from the majority of Agatha Christie stories, so if you're looking for something a bit different, or something that can be digested in small bites, this is the book for you.
