A brand new collection of short stories featuring the Queen of Crime' s legendary detective Jane Marple, penned by twelve remarkable bestselling and acclaimed authors. This collection of twelve original short stories, all featuring Jane Marple, will introduce the character to a whole new generation. Each author reimagines Agatha Christie' s Marple through their own unique perspective while staying true to the hallmarks of a traditional mystery. * Naomi Alderman * Leigh Bardugo * Alyssa Cole * Lucy Foley * Elly Griffiths * Natalie Haynes * Jean Kwok * Val McDermid * Karen M. McManus * Dreda Say Mitchell * Kate Mosse * Ruth Ware Miss Marple was first introduced to readers in a story Christie wrote for The Royal Magazine in 1927 and made her first appearance in a full-length novel in 1930' s The Murder at the Vicarage. It has been 45 years since Agatha Christie' s last Marple novel, Sleeping Murder, was published posthumously in 1976, and this collection of ingenious new stories by twelve Christie devotees will be a timely reminder why Jane Marple remains the most famous fictional female detective of all time.

' - Tana French
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
