Agatha Christie’s Devon
Agatha Christie certainly had a fondness for Devon. Not only did she have a holiday home there but 15 of the Dame’s mysteries include settings in Devon.
Thanks to the Associated Press for the following list of some of Christie’s books with the Devon tie-in:
The ABC Murders – After the murders of Alice Asher and Betty Barnard, the body of Sir Carmichael Clark is found on a Devon beach, setting on the trail of a killer who seems to be murdering people in alphabetical order.
Guests at an isolated mansion on an island off the Devon coast are murdered one by one.
Evil Under the Sun – Murder disrupts Poirot’s quiet seaside holiday at a secluded Devon hotel.
Ordeal by Innocence – Scientist and amateur detective Arthur Calgary stirs up a hornet’s nest when he tries to solve a family murder at Sunny Point, a Devon country house reminiscent of Greenway.
