When Agatha Christie died in 1976, she was the bestselling mystery writer in history. This collection of new essays brings fresh perspectives to Christie scholarship with new readings and discussions of little-known aspects of her life, career and legacy. The contributors explore her relationship with modernism, the relevance of queer theory, television adaptations, issues with translations, information behavior theory, feminist readings, postcolonial tribute novels, celebrity culture and heritage cinema. The final word is given to fans in an editorial that collates testimonies from readers, collectors and enthusiasts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Based on my experience of reading essay collections I would definitely recommend this one as the arguments posed are thought provoking and engage with Christie in a new way. Moreover, the range covered here also means that there will be something of interest for every Christie fan and has definitely given me a mountain of things to think about and has also given me a serious itch to re-read Christie's work. Additionally, the language used in this collection in comparison to some academic essay collections is on the whole accessible, opening the work to those outside of the academic community" - Cross Examining Crime Blog, April 2016

"A brilliant essay collection on one of the world's most popular detective fiction writers, with each chapter radiating unashamed enthusiasm for Christie and her works...Overall this is a thought provoking collection which provides a new look on Christie and her work... A must read for Christie fans." - CADS (Crime and Detective Stories), Issue 73
