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

Review

‘Wholesale murder by black magic…highly ingenious, wholly enjoyable.’
Evening Standard

‘The acknowledged queen of detective fiction’ Observer

From the Back Cover

To understand the strange goings on at The Pale Horse Inn, Mark Easterbrook knew he had to begin at the beginning. But where exactly was the beginning?

Was it the savage blow to the back of Father Gorman’s head? Or was it when the priest’s assailant searched him so roughly he tore the clergyman’s cassock? Or could it have been the priest’s visit, just minutes before, to a woman on her death bed?

Or was there a deeper significance to the violent squabble which Mark Easterbrook had himself witnessed earlier?

Wherever the beginning lies, Mark and his sidekick, Ginger Corrigan, may soon have cause to wish they’d never found it…

Imagine the setting circa 1960. Mrs Christie has a sharp eye for contemporary fashions (hairstyles like birds nests, thick jumpers worn for dinner) and mores (coffee bars, flower shops that sell one bloom in masses of maidenhair). Instead of Poirot and Miss Marple, we have Mrs Oliver and Mrs Dane Calthrop (I love the way she mixed and matched detectives). The central character, Mark Easterbrook, is a serious, bookish man who stumbles across some odd happenings and begins to add two and two when he bumps into an old friend, now a forensic pathologist. The central 'case' is seen from many angles (and more than one narrator), and its elements are only linked by the mysterious phrase 'the pale horse'. It turns out to be a former pub now inhabited by three eccentric ladies of a certain age who are only too happy to tell you about their hobby - black magic. Can they possibly be linked to a list of names whose owners turn out to be rather dead? Easterbrook and a picture restorer called Ginger are determined to find out. Their search leads them from mansion flats to boarding houses to dusty offices in Birmingham to draughty country vicarages. Now read on!

At first I wasn't quite sure about this title, not being a fan of black magic and seance's . How wrong was I to doubt Agatha, she has the knack of leading everyone up the garden path. The story had very little to do with the occult. A well deserved five star rating. Kindle readers get on this magnificent crime writer. You can't go wrong.

This is not your usual Christie feast, but well worth the read. There's some black magic and superstition, suspicious deaths and a murderer that you might not get until the end. Lots of twists in the tale, danger for the main characters and some great names. It's not a Marple novel, though the TV series got her in there, just as they did with The Sittaford Mystery, which never featured her in the book, but got her involved in the TV plot! Though there is Ariadne Oliver in the story. A fun read if you like this kind of thing.
