1970 Hardcover Book, The Nursery Rhyme Murders, Agatha Christie, Mystery, Novel, Fiction, Literature, Classic, Collectible, Short Stories

A hardcover classic book entitled The Nursery Rhyme Murders by Agatha Christie. The cover boards are black with the title on the spine in red. It is missing its dust cover.

This is a book of three short stories by Agatha Christie.
They are:

A Pocket Full of Rye -- Copyright 1953
The shocking thing about Rex Fortescue’s murder was that the contemptible tycoon wasn’t knocked off sooner. But when two less-deserving souls fall victim to the killer, Miss Jane Marple is engaged to detect. The only link appears to be buried in a not-so-innocent verse. So what’s the rhyme and reason behind the playful hint? The answer draws the shrewd sleuth into the heart of a family secret – and an increasingly menacing game that’s anything but child’s play.

Hickory Dickory Death -- Copyright 1955
An outbreak of kleptomania at a student hostel was not normally the sort of crime that aroused Hercule Poirot's interest. But the list of stolen items - including a slashed rucksack and a diamond ring - made no sense. And why was everyone so afraid?

The Crooked House -- Copyright 1948
This book starts with Sophia and Charles who are in love with each other. Charles has promised Sophia that after coming to England, the first thing he will do is to marry her. After the two years, when Charles comes, he found that Sophia’s grandfather, the rich 80-years-old Aristide Leonides is dead. The death was not natural as he has been injected with the poison instead of insulin. The entire doubt is on his young wife Brenda and children’s tutor Laurence. Sophia has decided to not marry until the killer gets convicted. Charles father is an Assistant Commissioner and he decided to mingle with the family to get a breakthrough in the case.

Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, Lady Mallowan, DBE (1890 – 1976) was an English writer. She is known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, particularly those revolving around her fictional detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Christie also wrote the world's longest-running play, a murder mystery, The Mousetrap and six romances under the name Mary Westmacott. In 1971 she was appointed a Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire (DBE) for her contribution to literature.
