From the Author:
There are many editions of Christie's first novel out there, but this is the only one that was written for fans of classic mysteries and of Agatha Christie in particular. I love diving into the history behind the mystery, discovering why strychnine was used as a tonic, who Land Girls were, the meaning of a green baize door, and even why Christie made Poirot a Belgian.
About the Author:
BILL PESCHEL is a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist who uses his skills to discover "the history behind the mystery," whether annotating the fiction of Agatha Christie and Dorothy L. Sayers, Victorian true crime, or Sherlock Holmes parodies and pastiches. He researched and collected stories about great writers published as "Writers Gone Wild" (Penguin), and is working on a sequel. He welcomes questions, comments and media requests at Peschel Press.

Over a long, prolific career, AGATHA CHRISTIE (1890-1976) created two iconic characters in the mystery genre - Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple - and wrote eighty crime novels and collections of stories, nineteen plays, six novels written as Mary Westmacott, an autobiography and a memoir, "Come, Tell Me How You Live." Her play, "The Mousetrap," is the longest-running play in history. Christie was awarded the CBE in 1956 and made a Dame Commander, Order of the British Empire, in 1971.
