About the Author:

Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 20 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Review:

"...The most skillfully written murder mysteries ever produced." -- The New York Times

"A truly entertaining classic thriller." -- Sunday Times

"Deservedly a classic among murder thrillers." -- The Observer

"The cleverest murder mystery of the British theater." -- The Daily Telegraph

"Unfailingly ingenious." -- The London Times
