Abstract:

"A ... companion to the works of Agatha Christie, this definitive biographical guide is a valuable reference for all mystery fans. 'The Agatha Christie Who's Who contains 50 original illustrations and the first complete bibliography of Agatha Christie's stories and novels. The more than 2,000 character entries are conveniently arranged in alphabetical order and completely cross-referenced.'

Without revealing the murderers, [this book] contains everything there is to know about the world's favorite mystery personalities."
