Agatha Christie, Queen of Mystery

Have you enjoyed Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple on TV but never read the originals?  Or did you read them so long ago that you've forgotten who murdered Roger Ackroyd?  We have fresh, new copies of many Christie classics.  Check them out and when you have read them all, browse our Read-a-Likes or ask the librarians for recommendations.
