More About the Author

Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie began writing during the First World War and wrote over 100 novels, plays and short story collections. She was still writing to great acclaim until her death, and her books have now sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in over 100 foreign languages. Yet Agatha Christie was always a very private person, and though Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple became household names, the Queen of Crime was a complete enigma to all but her closest friends.

Product Description

About the Author

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 over 100 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.

Format: Paperback
This is a great collection of four Agatha Christie novels from the 1940's. Although the Miss marple and Hercule Poirot mysteries are wonderful, they're beginning to become a little familiar, so its great to see these new collections of Agatha Christie stand-alone novels. I've read three of them so far(1920's, 1940's and 1950's)and this is my favourite. The Crooked House and Towards zero mysteries are well crafted and keep you guessing the identity of the killer until the very end. However the star of the collection is Sparkling cyanide. I just love everything about it, particularly the way you get to learn about the murder almost in flashback, and there lots of plot twists! N or M is a Tommy and Tuppence spy story dealing with fifth columnists. I tend to find these espionage thrillers the least satisfying of Agatha Christies work. However, in this case the mystery is pretty good, and the fact it was written during the war when fifth columnists were a real threat makes it more interesting from an histirical point of view. Overall this is a great set of mysteries and really good value for money!

I chose this rating because it is a good product. There is nothing I didn't like about it. I would recommend it to anyone who likes murder mysteries, and who doesn't mind the fact that it was written in a setting in which there were no mobile phones or computers.
