"An engrossing, mystery-lover's treasure from beginning to end" --Library Bookwatch
Intrigue and romance in Art Deco England
The Queen of Crime plumbs the recesses of the human heart in these five tales of mystery and murder, passion and peril, suspense and the supernatural.
In these stories, lesser-known Christie protagonists find themselves the victims of false accusations, embroiled in illicit love affairs, torn between duty and desire, and under the thumb of employers with questionable motives. These classic adaptations are Christie at her best, now on DVD for the first time.
The superb ensemble casts include Amanda Redman (New Tricks, Sexy Beast), Ralph Bates (Dear John, Poldark), Stephanie Cole (Doc Martin), Cherie Lunghi (Secret Diary of a Call Girl), Christopher Cazenove (The Duchess of Duke Street, Dynasty), and Rupert Everett (My Best Friend’s Wedding).
Magnolia Blossom: An unhappy wife tries to escape her marriage.
The Mystery of the Blue Jar: A young man consults an expert on the paranormal.
The Red Signal: A séance foretells of sudden death and danger.
Jane in Search of a Job: An Englishwoman takes on a dangerous assignment.
The Manhood of Edward Robinson: A henpecked fiancé sets off on the drive of his life.
We had no idea these episodes existed! Even though these don't have the big names of Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, and Tommy & Tuppence, they are still classic Agatha Christie. Read morePublished 6 months ago by Brad A. Bigam

I ordered to complete a set. I received wrong set. So, cannot view Set Two. No problems returning redundant set one, other than lost time.Published 16 months ago by Pat Ryan

This is good for an evening relaxing and not watching the "nothing" on TV. Much better than the trashy sitcoms and reality shows.Published 17 months ago by Noni
