9780002316590: Mrs McGinty's Dead (Agatha Christie Collection)

Volume 51 in the Agatha Christie Collection (1952) Limited edition of 1000 copies worldwide

Mrs McGinty died from a brutal blow to the back of her head. Suspicion fell immediately on her shifty lodger, James Bentley, whose clothes revealed traces of the victim’s blood and hair. Yet something was amiss: Bentley just didn’t look like a murderer.

Poirot believed he could save the man from the gallows – what he didn’t realise was that his own life was now in great danger…

Review:

‘So simple, so economical, so completely baffling. Every clue scrupulously given, with superb sleight of hand.’

San Francisco Chronicle

‘The best Poirot since such pre-war classics as Cards on the Table.’
New York Times

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, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
