Hannah says reading Christie as a young teenager made her fall in love with mystery fiction. You and me both, Sophie.
The first Agatha Christie novel I read was Death on the Nile, which plunged me into a grown-up world of passion, sex, jealousy, greed, exotic places, even more exotic characters and, of course, murder.
I gasped at the ingenious plot and the clever twist. I marvelled at the audacity with which the author baffled my expectations and assumptions.
