Outsold only by the Bible and the works of Shakespeare, the works of Agatha Christie stand as some of the most celebrated crime fiction of our era. This book takes ten of Agatha Christie's most famous works and shows their relationship to ten of crime history's most famous and sensational cases-cases whose notoriety still resounds to this day. Addressing both novels and short stories, this work illuminates the relationship between Christie's Murder on the Orient Express and the sensational Lindbergh Kidnapping Case of 1932; the connections between Christie's Mrs. McGinty's Dead and the horrific true case of England's most loathed wife-killer, the American Dr. Hawley Harvey Crippen-and eight more engrossing pairings of Agatha Christie's ingenious mystery puzzles with vintage true crime's most sensational events.
