Agatha Christie, DBE, (15 September 1890 – 12 January 1976), was a British crime writer of novels, short stories, and plays. She also wrote romances under the name Mary Westmacott, but she is best remembered for her 80 detective novels—especially those featuring Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple—and her successful West End theatre plays. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, Christie is the best-selling writer of books of all time and, with William Shakespeare, the best-selling author of any kind. She has sold roughly four billion copies of her novels.[1] According to Index Translationum, Christie is the most translated individual author, with only the collective corporate works of Walt Disney Productions surpassing her.[2] Her books have been translated into at least 103 languages.[3] Christie’s stage play The Mousetrap holds the record for the longest initial run: it opened at the Ambassadors Theatre in London on 25 November 1952 and as of 2011 is still running after more than 23,000 performances. In 1955, Christie was the first recipient of the Mystery Writers of America’s highest honour, the Grand Master Award, and in the same year Witness for the Prosecution was given an Edgar Award by the MWA for Best Play. Most of her books and short stories have been filmed, some many times over (Murder on the Orient Express, Death on the Nile and 4.50 From Paddington for instance), and many have been adapted for television, radio, video games and comics. – Wikipedia Table of Contents The Mysterious Affair at Styles CHAPTER I.

A cosy read I have read many, many Agatha Christie books over the years, and was delighted to be able to download these two which I had not read before. Both were typical Agatha Christie classics. I have found that people either like or they hate these novels. I am part of the former group. I enjoy the strong sense of British society at that time it conveys (with so many of the values and prejudices of the upper class so amusing by today’s tastes). Agatha Christie is a master (or should I say mistress) of…

Incomplete, not as stated. Before purchasing, I was careful to select a version that stated it did in fact include the illustrations that go along with the story. In the description, it clearly states that this one includes maps and a copy of the will discussed in the mystery. However, that is not the case. This version has no such illustrations, just a “-” where they should be. Very disappointing since they are an important part of the novel. If you are looking to read this excellent book, be sure to find a…
