Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Queen of Mystery has come to Harper Collins! Agatha Christie, the acknowledged mistress of suspense — creator of indomitable sleuth Miss Marple, meticulous Belgian detective Hercule Poirot, and so many other unforgettable characters — brings her entire oeuvre of ingenious whodunits, locked room mysteries, and perplexing puzzles to Harper Paperbacks. Murder is a family affair in After the Funeral, as Poirot hunts for a killer following the savage hatchet-slaying of a woman who loudly questioned the cause of her brothers death at his memorial service the day before.

Review:

“Complete with a genealogical tree, a dubious will, and a family full of potential murderers.” New York Times

Review:

“Agatha Christie's puzzles have delighted fans for decades.” Diane Mott Davidson, New York Times bestselling author

Synopsis:

When Cora Lansquenet is savagely murdered with a hatchet, the extraordinary remark she made the previous day at her brother Richards funeral suddenly takes on a chilling significance. At the reading of Richards will, Cora was clearly heard to say, “It's been hushed up very nicely, hasn't it.… But he was murdered, wasn't he?”

In desperation, the family solicitor turns to Hercule Poirot to unravel the mystery.…

About the Author

Agatha Christie is the world's best known mystery writer. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the most widely published author of all time in any language, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare.

Her writing career spanned more than half a century, during which she wrote 79 novels and short story collections, as well as 14 plays, one of which, The Mousetrap,is the longest-running play in history. Two of the characters she created, the brilliant little Belgian Hercule Poirot and the irrepressible and relentless Miss Marple, went on to become world-famous detectives. Both have been widely dramatized in feature films and made-for-TV movies.

Agatha Christie also wrote six romantic novels under the pseudonym Mary Westmacott. As well, she wrote four nonfiction books including an autobiography and an entertaining account of the many expeditions she shared with her archaeologist husband Sir Max Mallowan.

Agatha Christie died in 1976.
