Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. It was her sharp observations of the ambitions that drive people, their relationships and the conflicts that erupt between them that added life and sparkle to her ingenious detective stories. When, writing as Mary Westmacott, she turned this understanding of human nature away from the crime genre, she created bittersweet novels, love stories with a jagged edge, as compelling and memorable as the best of her work.
