Remembered for her 66 mystery novels featuring detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, she is the single most popular mystery writer of all time and the best-selling writer of any kind second to William Shakespeare. Numerous movies based on Agatha Christies novels were made and they still continue to reach a broad contemporary audience. Over the last 78 years, Hercule Poirot, Miss Marple, Tommy and Tuppence, Mr Quinn, Parker Pyne and many others have been portrayed on several occasions.
