Miss Jane Marple

Today marks the 120th birthday of one of Britain's most celebrated crime fiction writers, Agatha Christie.

Geraldine McEwan playing Christie's Miss Marple!

With classics starting in the 1920's such as The Murder of Rodger Ackroyd, And Then There Were None and The Body in the Library, Agatha Christie is the best selling writer of all time. She has become the world's most translated author, and has sold more than four billion copies of her novel's globally. Most of us will know Christie's work from many of the film and television adaptations, like Murder, She Wrote or Innocent Lies. But I highly recommend to anyone craving a little classic murder mystery to head to a second hand bookstore and dust off a copy of Christie's Murder on the Orient Express.

Happy 120th Birthday Agatha Christie.
