My Thoughts

Agatha Christie is one of my favorite authors. I enjoy how the mysteries unravel without the help of today's modern forensics. When it comes to small screen adaptions of these classic novels, Acorn Media always does a stellar job.  Now, they have released a few DVD sets perfect for any hardcore fan. THE BEST OF AGATHA CHRISTIE, Volume 3 includes three exciting fan favorites.

Partners in Crime: The Secret Adversary - Tommy and Tuppence Beresford are a crime-solving team that go on a spy mission. They go on a dangerous search to find a missing woman during the cold war.

Ordeal by Innocence - Miss Marple visits the Argyle family for a wedding, but finds herself entangled in a murder where the whole family are suspects.

The Hollow - Poirot visit the Angkatells and discovers a love affair had led to murder. She goes off in search of the killer

If you know someone who loves Agatha Christie this DVD set would make a great gift. You can find it online at Acorn media for only $39.99. It's also available on Amazon.
