Meet the Author

Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie
Agatha Christie is nearly synonymous with upper-class British mysteries, for good reason. She set the standard for the genre in over 60 novels and dozens of short stories, also creating two classic detectives: the fastidious Belgian, Hercule Poirot, and English spinster Jane Marple. No one could match Christie's knack for weaving clues into her stories, then turning the whole thing inside out -- shocking her readers every time.

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.

    So so for such a great author

    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.

    Good value and fun reading!

    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!

    Great combo book!

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