Summary
"Agatha Christie was not only the most successful author of detective stories the world has ever known, she was also a mystery in herself, giving only the rarest interviews--declining absolutely to become any sort of public figure. Distinguished crime novelist H. R. F. Keating brings together a dozen noted writers to throw light on the ever-intriguing Dame Agatha. Some essays analyze Christie's art itself; some explain the reasons for her success. The myriad of angles explored here are penetrating, affectionate, enthusiastic, analytical, and even funny. Together, they give insight into the life and work of the First Lady of Crime"--
