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.

That was a fun ride! And I almost had it figured out. Well, not really. I mean, I was right in my guess for whodunnit, but couldn't figure out howdunnit. Anyway, it was perfectly plotted, wonderfully drawn characters, and Dan Stevens did a fantastic job bringing it to life with his reading. Au...

I enjoyed this a lot! And my success at sussing out the murderer while reading Crooked House apparently was just dumb luck, because once again I was completely fooled as to who the murderer was.

What a great look at the Miss Marple series. This one has an interesting cast of characters, Miss Marple showing everyone up, and references to characters that many in the series should know by now, such as Sir Henry Clithering. Due to Miss Marple's connection to Sir Henry and just being around the ...

I won´t be saying much about the story. It´s brilliant and worth every single star of my five star rating back when I read it for the very first time. I had a problem with the narration of this audiobook. Dan Stevens is an excellent narrator and I enjoyed listening to the audiobook. But he simply ...
