Agatha Christie is the grand dame of the British murder mystery genre. During her lifetime she penned 66 works of detective fiction, nearly all of them whodunit plots with bloody knives, poison pens, and smoking guns galore. Whether on a remote island or a posh steam engine, Christie's fiction deals in death. The result? She's sold more than two billion copies of her books.
