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.

AudiobookThe story reminded me a lot of a Josephine Tey book. I wonder who wrote it first. I enjoyed it. Hugh Fraser was the narrator. He did his normal wonderful job.

"Third Girl" was a strange and dispiriting journey for me. At the start of the book, I was pleasantly surprised at the contemporary (1960's) feel of the novel. There was much more humour in it than I'd expected but there was also more violence and a deeper sense of threat than in other Poirot nove...

Although I recall seeing David Suchet's Hercule Poirot on the TV series Poirot, this is the first Agatha Christie I've read, and I thoroughly enjoyed it. A passenger is killed while lying in the bed of his sleeping car one night, and by coincidence, one of his fellow passenger on the same car is th...
