Step into the mysterious and intriguing world of Agatha Christie novels, with these collections curated by sellers from across the globe. Join the dandy Hercule Poirot or the seemingly sweet and befuddled Miss Marple as they set off on another sleuthing adventure. Can you solve the whodunit before these iconic detectives?
Born in 1890, Agatha Christie was home-schooled and painfully shy, but her brilliantly curious mind and insatiable imagination gave her a passion for fiction. Although she wasn't averse to the odd strangulation or bludgeoning, her preferred method of dispatching her fictional victims was poison, possibly due to her work in a dispensary during the second world war.
Choose from rare first editions of titles such as One, Two, Buckle My Shoe or Poirot Investigates, complete with original dust jacket, with price unclipped, to leather rebinds and reprints and later editions of Christie favorites, like Crooked House or And Then There Were None. Immerse yourself in the fictional worlds of Agatha Christie mysteries and get to know her tenacious, intuitive, intelligent sleuths as they solve murders and mysterious occurrences. Agatha Christie, whilst best known for her crime fiction, was far from one-dimensional. Aside from collectible murder mysteries from, arguably, the creator of the modern detective novel, some collections feature much sought-after Agatha Christie plays and short stories. Among our sellers' collections, you'll find her non-fiction works, including her autobiography, An Autobiography, in which she fails to mention her mysterious 10-day disappearance, and her poetry collections, Poems and The Road of Dreams. Her children's book, Star Over Bethlehem, is much loved by Agatha Christie collectors for its charm and originality. Then, of course, are her vintage romance novels, written under the pen name Mary Westmacott.
Purchase Agatha Christie books featuring Hercule Poirot or Miss Marple novels to complete your collection, or be adventurous and try one of Christie's stories featuring other detectives, like Harley Quin and Mr. Satterthwaite, Tommy and Tuppence, or Colonel Race.
