About the Author
Agatha Christie is the most widely published author of all time, outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. Her books have sold more than a billion copies in English and another billion in a hundred foreign languages. She died in 1976, after a prolific career spanning six decades.
"The Last Seance shows that Christie could pull off stories of supernatural suggestion, and that she was fantastic at creating atmosphere."--New York Journal of Books
"This collection overall gets that balance between horror and mystery exactly right...That's part of Dame Christie's spooky brilliance, knowing when to satisfy readers with the mundane monstrosity of a human murderer and when to leave us with the chilling touch of the unknowable."--Criminal Element
"What better way to pre-game for Halloween than with a compilation of spooky stories from none other than Agatha Christie?"--InStyle
"Agatha Christie's books are both wonderful crime novels and studies in contrast and duality, and I adore them still. Underestimate them at your peril."
--Louise Penny, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Inspector Gamache novels
"Agatha Christie taught me many important lessons about the inner workings of the mystery novel before it ever occurred to me that I might one day be writing mysteries myself."
--Sue Grafton, #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Kinsey Millhone novels
"Any mystery writer who wants to learn how to plot should spend a few days reading Agatha Christie. She'll show you everything you want to know."--Donna Leon, New York Times bestselling author of the Commissario Brunetti novels
"Agatha Christie's indelibly etched characters have entertained millions across the years and a love of her work has brought together generations of readers--a singular achievement for any author and an inspiration to writers across the literary landscape."
--Jacqueline Winspear, New York Times bestselling author of the Maisie Dobbs novels
