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.

Reviews

Hugh Fraser turns in a stellar performance in this audio version of Christie's classic mystery. When bored diplomat Stafford Nye meets a mysterious young woman at an airport lounge in Frankfurt, he learns her life in in danger and is drawn into a dangerous world of intrigue. Fraser-whom listeners will recognize as Captain Hastings on the BBC television series Poirot-reads with excellent pacing, tone, and inflection. He conjures up a host of compelling voices and accents for the cast of characters; his portrayal of Nye is spot-on and his high-pitched Aunt Matilda is a delight. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
