“The acknowledged Queen of Detective fiction”
Twelve tantalising cases… the curious disappearance of Lord Listerdale; a newlywed’s fear of her ex-fiancé; a strange encounter on the train; a domestic murder investigation; a mild man’s sudden personality change; a retired inspector’s hunt for a murderess; a young woman’s impersonation of a duchess; a necklace hidden in a basket of cherries; a mystery writers arrest for murder; an astonishing marriage proposal; a soprano’s hatred for a baritone; and the case of the Rajah’s emerald.
All have one thing in common: the skilful hand of Agatha Christie.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. She wrote 80 crime mysteries and collections, and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of her plots.
