An elderly spinster has been poisoned in her country home – with only her little dog as the witness…

Everyone blamed Emily’s accident on a rubber ball left on the stairs by her frisky terrier. But the more she thought about her fall, the more convinced she became that one of her relatives was trying to kill her.

On April 17th she wrote her suspicions in a letter to Hercule Poirot. Mysteriously he didn’t receive the letter until June 28th… by which time Emily was already dead…

Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters. The stories have also transcended the printed page, become bestselling audiobooks and award-winning films, plays and television series. Now words and pictures combine in an exciting new way of telling these stories – full-colour graphic novels which enhance the original stories and offer a completely new way of enjoying some of the world’s most popular and exciting mysteries.

Review:

“There is always room for more Agatha… These graphic adaptations dish up the quintessence of Christie. There are, in other words, lurid melodrama, plenty of weird and wonderful coincidences, lashings of period-perfect style and a thorough workout for the little grey cells.” Observer

“Agatha Christie is a classic of her genre. These are good stories. Now they can be accessed in different ways.” Times Educational Supplement

“Along with their brilliantly noirish covers, the books are intended to reinvigorate Christie’s murderous tales… Mixing their quintessentially English tales with a continental taste for comic books, the series will appeal to graphic novel fans who may not otherwise discover Agatha Christie’s most enduring stories.” Velocity Magazine

From the Back Cover:

'DUMB WITNESS' Agatha Christie

Everyone blamed Emily's accident on a rubber ball left on the stairs by her frisky terrier. But the more she thought about her fall, the more convinced she became that one of her relatives was trying to kill her.

On April 17th she wrote her suspicions in a letter to Hercule Poirot. Mysteriously, he didn't receive the letter until June 28th …by which time Emily was already dead.

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.

"One of Poirot's most brilliant achievements"
