Dame Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie, DBE (née Miller) was an English crime novelist, short story writer, and playwright. She also wrote six romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best known for the 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections she wrote under her own name, most of which revolve around the investigations of such characters as Hercule Poirot, Miss Jane Marple, Mr Satterthwaite, and Tommy and Tuppence. She also wrote the world's longest-running play, The Mousetrap.

Born into a wealthy upper-middle-class family in Torquay, Devon, Christie served in a hospital during the First World War, before marrying and starting a family in London. She was initially unsuccessful at getting her work published; but in 1920 The Bodley Head press published her novel The Mysterious Affair at Styles, featuring the character of Poirot. This launched her literary career.

The kettle was not quite boiling when Miss Somers poured the water on the tea, but poor Miss Somers was never quite sure when a ...

I listened to the audiobook narrated by Hugh Fraser and I could listen to Fraser for hours on end. He is by far my favorite narrator of the Christe books and he even outshines David Suchet. The Murder on the Links is one of my favorite Poirot novels. The mystery is a great one, Poirot has to deal ...

So this is Agatha Christie´s take on a serial killer story. And she manages to pull it of. Whether it is one of her classic who dunnits, this serial killer story or if its even one of her ridiculous spy stories, I never regret reading a book by her and I´m thoroughly entertained by them. The ABC M...
