Agatha Christie - Other Mystery Novels
Agatha Christie wrote a total of 66 mystery novels and not all of them featured either Poirot or Marple. As well as the many Poirot and Marple mystery novels, Agatha Christie wrote a large volume of other novels with various protagonists acting as they lead ‘sleuth’ character. With murders ranging from poisonings to being pushed off a cliff, framed for murder and drownings – each novel offers Christie’s usual knack for keeping you guessing, plenty of red herrings and a host of likely suspects. Below are the various novels by type for you to explore. There are a mix of thriller/ mystery novels centred around the Beresfords, a married couple who work together solving crimes. Many of the murder mystery novels are country house and closed circle mysteries such as Crooked House, Towards Zero and Ordeal by Innocence. Then there are the thriller/espionage novels and finally the plays (many of which have been transferred into novels and or/ short stories).
