AGATHA CHRISTIE
Agatha Christie is the world's best-known mystery writer. Her books have been sold over billion copies in English and another billion over 45 foreign languages. She is outsold only by the bible and Shakespeare.

Agatha Miller was born in Torquay,England on September 15th, 1890. In 1914 she married Colonel Archibald Christie,an aviator in the Royal Flying Corps. The couple had one daughter, Rosalind,before their divorce in 1928.
AGATHA CHRISTIE
The story starts when the Inspector Evans begins suspecting of his new neighbour Mrs Anthony, who years before murdered her husband with arsenic but she was acquitted. Now she moved on with her new husband George Merrowdene and the Inspector Evans is worried about it, he thinks that Mrs Anthony can do the same thing again. The Inspector Evans begins to doubt of the woman who lives near him, one day he goes downtown and see Mrs Anthony talking to Captain Haydock so he walks straight to them just to uncover the truth about this misterious woman. Then, Mrs Anthony invite him to have tea at her house with her husband. When they are there, Inspector Evans realised that Mrs Anthony wants to kill her husband and he spit out the truth in her face when George is out of the room. But what happens is that Mrs Anthony didn't want to kill her husband, she wanted to kill the Inspector because she knew how suspicious he was, so she cheated him and she finally killed him.
HER WORK
In a writing career that spanned more than half a century,
Agatha Christie wrote 79 novels and short story collections.
She also wrote over a dozen plays including The Mousetrap,
which opened in London on November 25th, 1952, and is now the longest continuously running play in theatrical history.

Christie's first novel, The mysterious Affair at Styles (1920), was also the first to feature her eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Surely one of the most famous fictional creations of all times , Poirot's 'little grey cells' triumphed over devious criminals in 33 novels and many dozens of short stories.
RESUME "The Mystery of Hunter's Lodge"
Poirot and Hastings receive a visit from a Mr Roger Havering who tells them that his uncle Harrington Pace has been killed. As Poirot is indisposed, Hastings sets off with Havering for the scene of the crime. Mr Pace, the brother of Mr Havering's mother, owns a hunting lodge on the Derbyshire moors. When Hastings and Havering arrive there they meet Inspector Japp as Scotland Yard has been called. As Havering goes off with Japp, Hastings speaks with the housekeeper, Mrs Middleton, who tells him she showed a black-bearded man into the house the previous evening who wanted to see Mr Pace. Hastings heard the story and he finally believes it. But when he is back to London, Poirot gives him is own theory about the crime Mrs Middleton never existed. She was Zoe Havering in disguise. Only Mr Havering claims to have seen the two women together at the same time. Havering did go to London with one of the pistols which he dumped and Mrs Havering shot her uncle with the other pistol. Japp is convinced of the theory but does not have enough evidence to make an arrest. The Haverings inherit their uncle's fortune but not for long: the two are soon killed in an aeroplane crash.

in the book) and it starts when the Inspector Evans
starts suspecting of his new neighbour, Mrs Anthony

Mrs Anthony, George Merrowdene and Captain Haydock.

-WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT THIS BOOK?
It didn't finish the way you expect to. it turns exactly
the opposite thing you were expecting. I love that kind
of stories. I also like it because Inspector Evans thinks he knows
the truth, but he doesn't. He acts like a fool. I like that.

-WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THIS BOOK? WHY? WHY NOT?
I would recommend this storie because it's not the cliche
detective storie we all know. This is quite different. And that
makes it really good.
