about

Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks is the fascinating exploration of the contents of Agatha Christie’s long hidden notebooks, including illustrations, analyses, and two previously unpublished Hercule Poirot short stories. Not only will Christie’s legions of ardent fans find a treasure chest of new material from the author of such classics as And Then There Were None, Murder on the Orient Express, and Death on the Nile, but Agatha Christie’s Secret Notebooks is also a must-read tutorial for writers who want to learn the intricacies of constructing crime novels.
John Curran is the longtime literary adviser to Agatha Christie's estate. For many years he edited the official Agatha Christie newsletter and acted as consultant to the National Trust during its restoration of Greenway House, Christie's Devon home. He lives in Dublin.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Only if you are a fan This is interesting look into how Dame Christie created her stories. It is, however, a bit of a difficult book to get through unless you are a big fan.
