“Agatha Christie is in a class by herself. For those of us who write mysteries, there’s no better muse, and for those of us who read them, no deeper pleasure.”

Meet the Author

Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie was born in 1890 and created the detective Hercule Poirot in her debut novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920). She achieved wide popularity with The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926) and produced a total of eighty novels and short-story collections over six decades. Twenty-four of Christie's best whodunits are now available from Black Dog & Leventhal as part of their bestselling hardcover Agatha Christie Collection.

Biography

Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language, and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and a short story collection, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap, is the longest running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world famous detectives. Both have been widely dramatized in feature films and made-for-TV movies. Agatha Christie died in 1976.

    Too romantic :P

    Before I begin my rant about romance I'll say that it is a very good book mostly because I like books in the first person. I did not like the romance. It was a bad idea. This is supposed to be a murder mystery, not a romance! I personally think that the romance ruined this and most other books. It would have given it five stars if it had not been for the romance, which cut off two stars. I'm not surprised this had Miss Marple. In most of the books by Agatha Cristie I've read Miss Marple was in it. Like 'Murder At The Vicarage' she plays a small part, because we're always with Jerry, the narrator. She still solved the mystery, but she came in near the end.

    Agatha Christie at her best

    This is a truly fascinating plot, very twisty, and the nice little romance, along with period atmosphere and setting, makes it a treat for the English mystery-lover.

    Not Bad

    The book, overall, was not bad at all. I personally prefer Christie's Poirot-centric novels but this one was entertaining enough. The plot was clever and the ending definately satisfying. It's definately worth picking up while at the library or book store.

    I've read like 20 or 25 Christie's books, and this is the first

    I've read like 20 or 25 Christie's books, and this is the first one I found dreadful. Too romantic, TOO SILLY, and where is Miss Marple?
