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.

    LOVED IT.

    Brilliant! The characters are amusing, the ending was strong...
    An amazing book. Five stars! The Evans topic could have been more dominant, however. I feel that it was a bit overshadowed by other things that were going on.
    Despite the fact neuther Poirot or Miss Marple starres in this novel, it was still pretty fantastic.

    The title keeps you reading it non-stop

    Another book that doesnt have M. Hercule POirot in it nor miss Jane Marple. But still the book is very interesting though not a very intelligent plot. A very plain story that lacks credibility at times. But Christie has done a marvellous job by giving it this title that keeps the reader wondering till the very end. The book has a few characters and the last words of a dying man which are the most intriguing part of it.
