Agatha Christie: Queen of Crime

 

The Guinness Book of World Records named Agatha Christie as the “bestselling author of all time.” Her book They Came to Baghdad  is now being offered for $1.99 during the month of June.

Popular for deviating from her usual mystery crime genre, They Came to Baghdad was inspired by Christies’s real life trip to the middle east and follows adventure-seeking Victoria Jones on her quest to finish the work of dying secret agent Henry Carmichael.

 Christie’s more than 66 novels and most commonly used character, Hercule Poirot, have also inspired the long running PBS television show, Poirot. Games to accompany the television show are also available online for the interactive viewer. 

Below is a clip from the television show:
