Stabbed in the back in the train station during rush hour—no witnesses. Strangled in a phone booth during lunch time—impossible. Stabbed in the heart during a quiet bridge game—everyone has an alibi. Murder, the ultimate crime—lurid and shocking, but a perfect setting for a game between the author and reader. Writing a mystery involves more than merely telling a story. It requires a special skill and perhaps a sharp, twisted mind. The plot tenders a challenge full of intricate puzzles, hidden motives, and red herrings. All the evidence is laid out. All the suspects are revealed. It's time for the reader to unweave the tangled drama and unmask the murderer.
The book includes quizzes on titles and plots, crimes and motives, aliases, murder weapons, settings, with specific questions on Christie’s mystery novels, short stories, romance novels, stage plays, movie adaptations, and the life and times of Agatha Christie.
