About the Author
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976.
“Time and again Agatha Christie pulled off what many obviously greater writers labored for in vain, a work of art which is both perfectly crafted and morally satisfying.”
-A. N. Wilson
“The action is rapid....The characters are astonishingly real.”
“A very human heroine, whose powers of invention, just like those of her creator, never fail her.”
-Times Literary Supplement (London)
