"There is always room for more Agatha... These graphic adaptations dish up the quintessence of Christie. There are, in other words, lurid melodrama, plenty of weird and wonderful coincidences, lashings of period-perfect style and a thorough workout for the little grey cells." Observer "Agatha Christie is a classic of her genre. These are good stories. Now they can be accessed in different ways." Times Educational Supplement "Along with their brilliantly noirish covers, the books are intended to reinvigorate Christie's murderous tales... Mixing their quintessentially English tales with a continental taste for comic books, the series will appeal to graphic novel fans who may not otherwise discover Agatha Christie's most enduring stories." Velocity MagazineReseña del editor:
A thirteen-year-old girl holds the clue to a death at a party on 31st October – was it a fatal mistake or a murder?
At a Hallowe’en party, Joyce – a hostile thirteen-year-old – boasts that she once witnessed a murder. When no-one believes her, she storms off home. But within hours her body is found, still in the house, drowned in an apple-bobbing tub.
That night, Hercule Poirot is called in to find the ‘evil presence’. But first he must establish whether he is looking for a murderer or a double-murderer.
Famed for her crime masterpieces, Agatha Christie’s books have become the best-selling in the world, appealing to readers young and old for their ingenious plots and immediately recognizable characters.
