Agatha Christie was born in 1890 and created the detective Hercule Poirot in her debut novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles (1920). She achieved wide popularity with The Murder of Roger Ackroyd (1926) and produced a total of eighty novels and short-story collections over six decades. Twenty-four of Christie's best whodunits are now available from Black Dog & Leventhal as part of their bestselling hardcover Agatha Christie Collection.From AudioFile:
What a little gem! Each member at a Tuesday night get-together tells a tale of mystery, preferably one he or she has personal knowledge of, and the rest of the crowd tries to figure out the solution. As Miss Marple is among them, looking harmless with her knitting, the rest hardly stand a chance. . . . We the lucky listeners also get to puzzle out these 13 stories. Fortunately, the ever observant Miss Marple is there to help. Joan Hickson is the best of the Miss Marples. After playing her on stage, as well as in the BBC adaptations, she gives a sterling performance and vividly brings the modest yet razor-sharp Jane Marple to life. D.G.
