5 new books in the series of facsimile editions of Christie's classic crime novels. The books have been reproduced with their original covers, in smart hardbacks.
Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 100 foreign countries. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 20 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
'A very human heroine, whose powers of invention, like those of her creator, never fail her' Times Literary Supplement 'All in all, the most satisfactory novel in some years from one of the most satisfying of novelists.' New York Times
