Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976, after a prolific career spanning six decades.
"Hercule Poirot will live on forever because, like Chaplin's Little
Tramp (that other immortal in moustache and bowler hat) he has the
ability to solve the problems of the world."--Alan Bradley, New
York Times bestselling author of the Flavia de Luce novels
"She springs her secret like a land mine."--Times Literary Supplement (London)
