When Lord Edgware is found murdered the police are baffled. His estranged actress wife was seen visiting him just before his death and Hercule Poirot himself heard her brag of her plan to get rid of him.
But how could she have stabbed Lord Edgware in his library at exactly the same time she was seen dining with friends? Its a case that almost proves to be too much for the great Poirot.
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English and another billion in one hundred foreign countries. She is the author of eighty novels and short-story collections, nineteen plays, and six novels under the name Mary Westmacott. She died in 1976.
“Any mystery writer who wants to learn how to plot should spend a few days reading Agatha Christie. She’ll show you everything you want to know.”
-Donna Leon, international bestselling author of the Commissario Guido Brunetti mysteries
“The whole case is a triumph of Poirot’s special qualities.”
-Times Literary Supplement (London)
