'If anyone writes about my life in the future, I'd rather they got the facts right.'Agatha Christie No one has had the same impact on the literary world as Agatha Christie: she is the world's bestselling fiction author, her books have been translated over 7,000 times and her play The Mousetrap is the world's longest-running production. Agatha Christie: Inspiring Lives explores her place in literary history, her books and her iconic characters - including Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple - alongside facts, trivia and quotes that feature in both Christie's legendary stories and their various adaptations. Cathy Cook delves into the secrets, mysteries and tricks that made Christie the most sensational and successful mystery writer of her time, and asks the question - how is it that she managed to keep us guessing until the very end?
