Meet the Author

The name "Agatha Christie" is nearly synonymous with upper-class British mysteries, for good reason. Christie (1890-1976) set the standard for the genre in more than 60 novels and dozens of short stories, creating two iconic detectives along the way: the fastidious Belgian Hercule Poirot, and the English spinster Jane Marple in the Miss Marple series. No one could match her knack for weaving clues into her stories. Widely considered her masterpiece, And Then There Were None has been adapted into a number of films.

These are two early works of Agatha Christie, found in several ither mystery anthologies: it's too bad that all her other e-offerings are so expensive!

A very nice edition of 2 of Christie's works. I had not read either of these books in some time. Refreshing reintroduction.

First off, this book contains the Affair at Styles and the Secret Adversary, which they don't fill you in on in the description. This is a clear case of an Author getting better as she wrote. Styles is a good one for those of you who haven't read it, but I was a little disappointed to find it in here having read that one more than once in other editions. The Secret Adversary starts off really good, but you figure it out about halfway through, and then the second have of the book becomes this arduous read.
