‘Like a lot of people I read Agatha Christie’s books young, about the age of 13, and I read them avidly. And I read them all as audiobooks so I got to know them all quite well all over again. The thing you realise is how good she is on characterisation. When you do an audiobook you write a list of characters so you can differentiate between them and very often there'd be 40 or 50 characters all clearly defined in these books including the chauffeur, the maid, the waiter – they'd all have a bit of a personality and that's what makes them so rich.’—HUGH FRASER, The Guardian

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, 30 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott.
