British detective writer, 1891-1976

Fishburn and Hughes: "An English writer of detective stories with an upper-middle-class background. Her first successful book was Murder at the Vicarage (1930). The intriguing complexity of Agatha Christie's plots, often determined by a highly specific closed world (an island, a ship, an hotel) in which murderer, victim and detective are confined, and her ability to hold suspense and create a final twist are the hallmarks other work. Her most memorable characters are the eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot and the elderly spinster Miss Marple whose acumen exceeds that of many police inspectors." (46)
