High Praise for the Queen of Crime Fiction!

“My very first grown-up book, I distinctly remember going to the library and my mom helping me pick out an Agatha Christie book. I tore through The Mysterious Affair at Styles. GILLIAN FLYNN, author of Gone Girl

“[Agatha Christie wrote] brilliantly compact, stylized and efficient mysteries…the genre in its lean classic English form fit her like a cat burglar’s thin black glove.”JOHN UPDIKE, author of The Witches of Eastwick

“I love Agatha Christie’s novels.” TRUMAN CAPOTE, author of In Cold Blood

“I really like Agatha Christie. She obeys the rules of the genre at first, but then occasionally she manages to do very personal things.” MICHEL HOULLEBECQ, author of The Map and the Territory
