The Man in the Brown Suit
"I read everything by Agatha Christie."--Gillian Flynn
In this official edition featuring exclusive content from the Queen of Mystery, a young woman investigates an accidental death at a London tube station.
Pretty, young Anne came to London looking for adventure. In fact, adventure comes looking for her--and finds her immediately at Hyde Park Corner tube station. Anne is present on the platform when a thin man, reeking of mothballs, loses his balance and is electrocuted on the rails.
The Scotland Yard verdict is accidental death. But Anne is not satisfied. After all, who was the man in the brown suit who examined the body? And why did he race off, leaving a cryptic message behind: 17-122 Kilmorden Castle?
Twisty, clever, and intriguing, The Man in the Brown Suit showcases Agatha Christie once again at her very best.

About the Author
Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was an English author of mystery fiction whose status in the genre is unparalleled. A prolific and dedicated creator, she wrote short stories, plays and poems, but her fame is due primarily to her mystery novels, especially those featuring two of the most celebrated sleuths in crime fiction, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple. Ms. Christie's novels have sold in excess of two billion copies, making her the best-selling author of fiction in the world, with total sales comparable only to those of William Shakespeare or The Bible. Despite the fact that she did not enjoy cinema, almost 40 films have been produced based on her work.
