When people think of history’s greatest writers of mystery, many think of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and his Sherlock Holmes’ stories. And as it turns out, the highest-selling author of all time was a writer of mysteries. But it wasn’t Conan Doyle. By sales numbers, the world’s most popular writer is a different British mystery writer: Agatha Christie (1890-1976). Christie has sold billions of copies of her works, the most popular being her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections (especially those featuring Hercule Poirot or Miss Jane Marple). Christie was also a well respected playwright, writing plays that have had long runs, such as The Mousetrap.

About the Author:

Dame Agatha Christie (1890-1976) was a British crime writer best known for her detective novels and short stories. According to Guinness World Records, she is the best-selling novelist of all time, her novels having sold over four billion copies and having been translated into more than one hundred languages. The Agatha Award for best mystery and crime writers was named in her honor.

Audiobook Narrator Bio: Alison Larkin was born in Washington, DC, adopted at six weeks old by British parents, and raised in England and Africa. After graduating from Royal Holloway College, London University, and the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art, she became a playwright and classical actress on the British stage. Then, at twenty-eight, she found her birth mother, who was living in Bald Mountain, Tennessee. The experience turned her into a stand-up comic. She was soon headlining at the Comic Strip in New York and the Comedy Store in Los Angeles, while maintaining her theatrical career. She also spent three years under a studio development contract to star in her own sitcom with ABC, CBS, and Jim Henson Productions. Her unusually wide range of voices can be heard in cartoons and movies, from work by James Cameron and Robert Altman to Pocahontas and The Wonder Pets. The audiobook of The English American, narrated by Alison, won an AudioFile Earphones Award.

Audiobook Narrator Bio: James Warwick is a narrator and actor whose acclaimed acting career has spanned the stage, television, and movies. He is best known for playing the role of Tommy Beresford in the 1980s British television series Partners in Crime and in three television films based on Agatha Christie novels.

Review:

''This classic Agatha Christie whodunit is brought to life with style. Warwick's characterization of Poirot is spot-on.'' --AudioFile Magazine

''Larkin is an excellent choice to narrate this delightful classic...her reading is champagne bubbly and engaging throughout...a jaunty, jolly good listen.'' --Publishers Weekly

''Warwick and Larkin are a delightful combination.'' --AudioFile Magazine
