Over the years, Agatha Christie wrote many other books and all of them belonged to te mystery and crime genre but none were as famous and loved by readers as this. The basic plot and the story0telling genius of the author have managed to catapult this into literature folk-lore.
A short history of the writer would indulge the facts that she was born in 1890 and died in 1976. She was a Briton by birth and born in Devon. Five years before her death, she was made a Dame by Queen Elizabeth II at Buckingham Palace.
