"Agatha Christie had one of the most creative minds in mystery fiction. She managed to use up almost all the plots before most of us were born." -- Nevada Barr, New York Times bestselling author of the Anna Pigeon mysteries
"A story that tickles and tantalizes but never exhausts the reader's patience or ingenuity." -- Times Literary Supplement (London)
"Timeless . . . why do we all continue to turn to her tales of mysteries and death? Maybe Christie put it best herself - that is the secret of existence, she said; we're all a little mad." -- NPR, All Things Considered
"Agatha Christie [is] the maestro of murder tales." -- People
"In addition to being enthrallingly plotted, Christie's books are just plain satisfying to read, especially in difficult, unpredictable times. She introduces a limited number of suspects in a limited space, ties up all her loose ends, and brings perpetrators to justice." -- Publishers Weekly
"[We] can't get enough of Christie's plush and murderous thrills." -- Entertainment Weekly
"Agatha Christie was perfecting and reinventing the genre." -- New York Times
