The readers have to solve the mystery and decide who the murdereris. Most of her crimes were committed in some closed surroundings with a limited number of people to suspect.
Both popular Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot were created by Agatha Christie as charactersfor her stories.
Miss Marple wasn’t a professional. She was just an old spinster, very modest and perceptive who acted as a detective.
My favorite Agatha Christie’s book is “Ten Little Indians”. Init ten people were invited to an isolated area by a mysterious stranger. Then they trapped to be killed one by one by an unseen host who wishes to punish them.
People can’t find much blood andviolence in her stories. Agatha Christie’s favorite way of murdering is by poisoning.
