Meet the Author

Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British crime writer of novels, short stories and plays. She is best remembered for her 80 detective novels—especially those featuring Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. Christie is the best-selling writer of books of all time and, with William Shakespeare, the best-selling author of any kind. Only the Bible has sold more than her roughly four billion copies of novels. Her books have been translated into at least 103 languages.

Agatha Christie delivers a great story as always. Lots of twists and turns. Keeps you guessing. A real page-turner. Hercule Peroit is introduced to the world in this book. This would have gotten 5 stars except that this particular e-book version does not contain the illustrations which are clues when trying to figure out who done it. I would recommend spending a few dollars more to be sure that you have the entire book.
