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 countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Book Description Book Condition: New. Publisher/Verlag: HarperCollins UK | 'Jeder hat etwas zu verbergen' erklärt Hercule Poirot. Und tatsächlich wird gemunkelt in dem beschaulichen Dorf, in das sich Poirot zurückgezogen hatte, um Kürbisse zu züchten: Mrs Ferrars soll ihren Mann vergiftet haben. Dann stirbt sie selbst an einer Überdosis Veronal. Wurde sie vielleicht erpresst? Und hatte sie tatsächlich eine Affäre mit Roger Ackroyd? Der wird schließlich mit einem tunesischen Dolch erstochen aufgefunden. Und sein Stiefsohn ist spurlos verschwunden. Vielleicht weiß ja der Vertrauen erweckende Dr. Sheppard wo er sich aufhält, doch der nimmt es mit der ärztlichen Schweigepflicht sehr genau. | Format: Paperback | Language/Sprache: english | 185 gr | 368 pp. Bookseller Inventory # K9780007141340
