I thought it might be a fun idea to start a thread dedicated to one of my favorite mystery authors, Agatha Christie. She wrote murder novels throughout what we call the Vintage era - 1920's through the 1950's. I can personally attest to her great writing. She will plant so many false leads and clues, that when she unveils the real culprit, you will most likely be completely surprised. She has a knack for capturing the mood and style of the era she writes in.
Her two main protagonists are Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple. I love both of them. Both are excellent at sniffing out the real reason behind the murder and tracking down the culprit.
Dame Agatha Christie published over seventy novels and short stories before dying in 1976. She also wrote the longest running play ever, "Mousetrap"
My personal favorites?
"The Murder of Roger Akroyd"
"And Then There Were None."
"Lord Edgware Dies"
Quite possibly the greatest mystery novels ever, save a select few.
So what do you love about her stories? What are your favorites? Anything about the Dame Christie can be talked about in this thread.
