Agatha Christie | A look at the life and craft of the world's most successful crime writer
Agatha Christie's characters Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot are famous all over the world and her murder mystery 'The Mousetrap', has broken all records as the world's longest running play.
Christie herself was renowned for her shyness and reticence in public, but in this collection we hear from the lady herself, listen to testaments from those who knew her and see some of the efforts made to analyse the secret of her amazing success. We also witness the growing realisation that 'The Mousetrap' might just run a little longer than expected.
