Review: The Last Seance by Agatha Christie

Kerry Hammond is here today with her review of a newly published short story collection by the Queen of Mystery, Agatha Christie.

The Last Séance: Tales of the Supernatural is a collection of short stories by Agatha Christie. Each story has an otherworldly theme, chosen to fit the compilation that was published on September 24, in Trade Paperback, by William Morrow Paperbacks.

The book is just in time for Halloween and contains the spookiest of Christie’s stories. It’s got a little bit of everything: a Poirot story where he investigates the death of a man who was having strange dreams, a medium who dares to perform one last reading, and Miss Marple solves what seems to be an impossible murder, just to name a few.

Most of the stories appear in other anthologies, but there’s just something about having these all in one place. For those of us who enjoy everything Christie, it’s a new book for the collection with a great theme. Of the twenty stories, one has never before been published in the U.S., which makes this a must have book.

This book was provided to Mystery Playground by the publisher. The review was fair and completely independent.
