The Mousetrap, the longest-running play in the English language, is 50 years old. This special edition comes complete with three other thrillers, showing how Agatha Christie's plays are as compulsive as her novels, their colourful characters and ingenious plots providing yet more evidence of her mastery of the detective thriller. THE MOUSETRAP. Being cut off by snowdrifts is not an auspicious beginning, but Molly and Giles Ralston are determined to make a go of their new guest house. But among their first visitors is a maniac with an ambition to murder 'Three Blind Mice'... AND THEN THERE WERE NONE. Ten guilty people, brought together on an island in mysterious circumstances, await their sentence... APPOINTMENT WITH DEATH. The suffocating heat of an exotic Middle-Eastern setting provides a backdrop for murder... THE HOLLOW. A set of friends convene at a country home where their convoluted relationships mean that any one of them could be a murderer...

Biographie d'Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in English with another billion in 100 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time and in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels written under the name of Mary Westmacott. Agatha Christie's first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, was written towards the end of the First World War, in which she served as a VAD. In it she created Hercule Poirot, the little Belgian detective who was destined to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. It was eventually published by The Bodley Head in 1920. In 1926, after averaging a book a year, Agatha Christie wrote her masterpiece. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was the first of her books to be published by Collins and marked the beginning of an author-publisher relationship which lasted for 50 years and well over 70 books. The Murder of Roger Ackroyd was also, the first of Agatha Christie's books to be dramatised - under the name Alibi - and to have a successful run in London's West End. The Mousetrap, her most famous play of all, opened in 1952 and is the longest-running play in history. Agatha Christie was made a Dame in 1971. She died in 1976, since when a number of books have been published posthumously: the best-selling novel Sleeping Murder appeared later that year, followed by her autobiography and the short story collections Miss Marples Final Cases, Problem at Pollensa Bay and While the Light Lasts. In 1998 Black Coffee was the first of her plays to be novelised by another author, Charles Osborne.
