Agatha Christie was an English murder mystery novel writer. She was born in Ashfield, Torquay to a wealthy family. Hers was a happy childhood, until her father died in 1901. Her father’s death plunged the family into financial strain, especially Agatha who was only 11 at the time. Although she started writing plays and songs at an early age, her true passion lay in writing stories, and in her lifetime, she wrote a remarkable number of them. Agatha died in 1976 at the age of 85.

Agatha was married twice in her life. Her first marriage to Archibald Christie ended in 1928, and in a very dramatic way. When Agatha discovered that Archie was having an affair with a certain Nancy Neele, and after Archie asked her for a divorce, she disappeared for a solid ten days, a period in which there were frantic efforts to find her. She would later be found at her a hotel having registered under Neele’s name. It was thought by many that she had disappeared in an effort to frame her husband and his lover for her murder, but she would later be diagnosed with amnesia. Her second marriage was to Sir Max Mallowan and it lasted until she died in 1976.

Most of Agatha’s work revolves around solving murder cases and an assortment of other crimes. However, Agatha also wrote 6 romantics using the pen name Mary Westmaccot. Agatha wrote both novels and short stories: she wrote 66 novels and 14 short stories. Some of the characters that appear in several of her books include the brainy and crafty Captain Poirot and Miss Jane Marple, both of whom are very gifted detectives.

Agatha Christie Awards

Agatha has been listed in the Guinness World Book of Records as the best-selling novelist of all time.

She was the first recipient of the Mystery Writers of America’s highest honor, the Grand Master Award in 1955.

Agatha Christie Books Made Into Movies/TV

Witness for the Prosecution is one of the many books by Agatha that have been made into movies. In this particular book, the main character, Leonard Vole, an inventor, is accused of the murder of his acquaintance, a rich lady who was killed a short while after she changed the content of her will to leave some of her wealth to Leonard. Leonard seeks the services of a sickly lawyer who does all he can to get him acquitted. The great controversy occurs when Leonard’s wife, Christine Vole, accepts to be a witness for the prosecution, thus building a very strong case against her husband. However, Christine later saves Leonard and, in an odd turn of events, kills him at the very end.

Best Agatha Christie Books:

And Then There Were None is one of Agatha Christie’s best- selling novels. The novel revolves around the mysterious deaths of ten people in a remote Indian Island. It all starts with an invitation of eight strangers to the Island by a mysterious Mr. Owen. Vera Claythorne, one of the guests thinks she is being offered a job as a secretary in the Island. She is a former governess. Dr. Armstrong thinks he is being invited to care for the wife of the owner of the Island. Four of them, Emily Brent, General Macarthy, Tony Marston and judge Wargrave all think that they are going to visit old friends, while the remaining two, Philip Lombard and William Blore think that that have been called to look out over the Island over the weekend.

To their shock, they all start dying one after the other under questionable circumstances, such as poisoning and even shooting. It follows that when they are all dead and the police start investigating the murder, that the murderer was the judge, who in a note wrote to say that he wanted to kill the victims for crimes they had committed in their lifetimes; crimes that could not be punished by law. The mystery in this book unravels in a truly captivating manner.

Mysterious Affair at Styles is also another great book by Agatha Christie, where Poirot, the clever detective, saves the day by correctly solving the murder of Mrs. Ingelthorpe.

All of Agatha’s work is fascinating in its own way and it therefore comes as no surprise that her books have won so many awards.
