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. In Dumb Witness, Hercule Poirot investigates the very suspicious death of an elderly spinster who, fearing the very worst, had written to the great detective prior to her demise.

Synopsis:

Everyone blamed Emily Arundells accident on a rubber ball left on the stairs by her frisky terrier. But the more she thought about her fall, the more convinced she became that one of her relatives was trying to kill her.…

On April 17th she wrote her suspicions in a letter to Hercule Poirot. Mysteriously, he didnt receive the letter until June 28th…by which time Emily was already dead.…

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.

Sappho, April 21, 2013 (view all comments by Sappho)
Settle into the world of an English village in 1936, populated by elderly Victorian spinsters, their sad companions, loyal servants, and ne'er-do-well wild children of the 1920's, still trying to make hay. Hercule Poirot and his innocent sidekick Hastings are called in to investigate a woman's death. The plot is great fun, and chances are you won't figure it all out before the inevitable drawing-room reveal . . . and even more fun are Hastings' bumbling deductions and the luscious glimpses of a vanished time and place. A wonderful read!
