The most popular mystery writer of all time concocted a rich recipe of intrigue, character, and setting. All of Agatha Christie’s 66 detective novels are covered here in great detail. Each chapter begins with general comments on a novel’s geographical and historical setting, identifying current events, fashions, fads and popular interests that relate to the story. A concise plot summary and comprehensive character listing follow, and each novel is discussed within Christie’s overall body of work, with an emphasis on the development of themes, narrative technique, and characters over the course of her prolific career. An appendix translates Poirot’s French and defines the British idiomatic words and phrases that give Christie’s novels so much of their flavor.

Having worked as a government employee for 35 years, during which time he tirelessly compiled statistics, Pyne decides to set himself up as a 'heart specialist'. Renting a London office and hiring the ferociously efficient Miss Felicity Lemon (who would go on to work for Mr Hercule Poirot ), Pyne sets about solving marital and romantic problems with the help of some extraordinary role-playing... For the first time, this volume sees all of Parker Pyne's adventures, both at home and abroad, bound together in the stunning new Christie livery.
