September Sleuths continues with the Queen of Crime herself – Agatha Christie. Born in Torquay in 1890, Agatha Christie became, and remains, the best-selling novelist of all time.

She is best known for her 66 detective novels and 14 short story collections, as well as the world’s longest-running play – The Mousetrap. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and a billion in translation. She was homeschooled by her father, an American, and taught herself to read by the age of 5.

During the first World War, she worked in a hospital dispensary in Torquay. She completed the examination of the Society of Apothecaries, which is where she got her extensive knowledge of poisons. During this time there were many Belgian refugees along the British countryside. Agatha thought that a Belgian refugee, who used to be a famous Belgian policeman, would make an excellent detective. She was right.


And now, Jewel Robbery at the Grand Metropolitan, by Agatha Christie.
