Agatha Christie

About

Agatha Christie was a British crime fiction writer who is considered the world’s best-known mystery writer and, apart from William Shakespeare, is the bestselling author of any genre. Her books have sold over two billion copies in the English language and another two billion in over 56 foreign languages. As an example of her broad appeal, she is the all-time bestselling author in France, with over 40 million copies sold in French versus 22 million for Emile Zola, the nearest contender. She is famously known as the ‘Queen of Crime’ and is, arguably, the most important and innovative writer in the development of the English mystery novel. (source: Biblio / Wikipedia)
