THE LAST SÉANCE features twenty haunting and memorable tales, all centered around the occult. Agatha Christie had a knack for creating the perfect ambience for any tale, and THE LAST SÉANCE gathers together in one collection many of her more eerie tales. There is much to love about this collection, which opens with the short story of the same name as the book, as we see Miss Marple, Hercule Poirot, and a host of other characters embroiled in some rather strange cases. The mysteries range from the human origin to the unknown or supernatural, and I love that we were kept guessing in each one until the conclusion.
Agatha Christie was one of the first mystery authors I ever read. I devoured all of her books (except the ones featuring Tommy and Tuppence ) and it is a pure delight to reread any of her works. Diving into THE LAST SÉANCE is like a visit with old friends, even though not all of the characters are part of any series. The eloquent language and style of any story by Agatha Christie shines through and makes sitting down with THE LAST SÉANCE feel like coming home again.
Agatha Christie is a true master of any story she touched, and her works are timeless classics. Whether it’s Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple solving a seemingly inexplicable mystery, a hoax perpetuated to fool someone about the paranormal, or a truly unexplained paranormal twist, each story in THE LAST SEANCE showcases the elegant and eloquent style of the dearly loved Agatha Christie.
For lovers of the supernatural and the macabre comes this collection of ghostly and chilling stories from legendary mystery writer Agatha Christie. Fantastic psychic visions, specters looming in the shadows, encounters with deities, a man who switches bodies with a cat—be sure to keep the light on whilst reading these tales.
The Last Séance gathers twenty stories, some featuring Christie’s beloved detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, in one haunting compendium that explores all things occult and paranormal, and is an essential omnibus for Christie fans.
