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.

    Great short story

    As with all Agatha Christie stories, it's very good. This one doesn't go into the detail some of her others do. But it is a great short story.

    Not a bad littj Not a bad little mystery for 23 pages.

    Agatha Christie will always be Agatha Christie, and Hercule Peroit will always be Hercule Peroit, even though this, by no means, could ever be said to be my favorite story. But, for 23 (almost) pages, it wasn't bad.
