Postern of Fate (Paperback)
Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings.
However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: "Mary Jordan did not die naturally." And sixty years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill. . . .
About the Author
Agatha Christie is the best-selling author of all time. She wrote eighty crime novels and story collections, fourteen plays, and several other books. Her books have sold roughly four billion copies and have been translated into 45 languages. She is the creator of the two most enduring figures in crime literature--Hercule Poirot and Miss Jane Marple--and author of "The Mousetrap", the longest-running play in the history of modern theatre. Christie was born in Torquay, Devon in 1890. She died in 1976 in Wallingford, Oxfordshire.
“What most impresses me about Agatha Christie (and what she doesn’t often get credit for), is her comprehension of the human heart.”
-S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author
“The Beresfords are wonderfully revived. Smooth, beautifully paced, and effortlessly convincing.”
-New York Times
