Product description

For the first time in a single combined B format, a new edition of Agatha Christie's eight stage plays, published to coincide with the 60th Anniversary Year of The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in history. THE MOUSETRAP, the longest-running play in the history of London's West End, begins its 60th Year run on 25 November 2011. This new edition of eight works show how Agatha Christie's plays are as compulsive as her novels, their colourful characters and ingenious plots providing yet more evidence of her mastery of the detective thriller.

Author information

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