This review is from: The Complete Mystery Novels of Agatha Christie, Vol. 1 (Agatha Christie Kindle Hercule Poirot The Complete Works of Agatha Christie KINDLE Agatha Christie Complete Works Kindle) (Kindle Edition)One reviewer claimed that this collection contained only two novels and nothing with Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple. The e book that I received has two Hercule Poirot novels. The Mysterious Affair at Styles is Dame Agatha's first book and her first Poirot novel. This excellent collection also has Murder on the Links which is one of my favorite books featuring Poirot. It also has the first of the Tommy and Tuppence adventures, The Secret Adversary. Besides these three novels, you get a large number of the author's early short stories. With its active table of contents and a Bibliography I have to say that this work is a great value for people who love classic detective stories.

Thanks for your review.
You know, I don't understand some of the other reviews. Everything listed is now in the public domain, which means these are her very earliest works. How can *anyone* claim none are "Poriot" when 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles' is so famous? And did they miss 'Murder on the Links'? Or...maybe...write a review *without* bothering to actually *read* the book?
Three novels and all those short stories in one volume with an interactive directory? $2.99 isn't unreasonable. However, those who choose can wait for Harper Collins to publish each book for upwards of $10.00 or choose from the selection of their AC short stories for $.99 *each*.

This is presented as the COMPLETE MYSTERY NOVELS. If there are only 2 novels please explain the word complete! Short stories are exactly what they say they are. THey are not novels.

I note that the title of this collection contains the words: Volume One. I assume that other volumes are to follow, not that I'm holding my breath.
