Agatha Christie wrote 66 detective novels. The first, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, in 1920, and the last, Postern of Fate, in 1973. It's a remarkable achievement, each novel a gem of suspense written with a fluency that makes them the perfect rainy day read. If you haven't yet met her two most famous inventions, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, you are in for a rare treat. It would be a joy indeed to have all 66 novels in the library but for the moment we will start with these two; Murder on the Links, a mystery set on a golf course in France, and Death in the Clouds, a whodunit on an airplane, about which The London Times wrote this "It will be a very acute reader who does not receive a complete surprise at the end". Enjoy.

A word about 'here':
We acknowledge that we are on the ancestral lands of the Lenape, original people of the mid-Atlantic area, forced west by British and US governments. Most Delaware Indian tribe descendants are now located in Oklahoma, Wisconsin, and Ontario. Lenni Lenapes in Pennsylvania are not officially recognized as tribes by the United States, though an estimated 5000 Lenape Nation descendants live in the Delaware River area. We pay respects to the Lenape people both past and present. Please consider the many legacies of violence, displacement and settlement that form part of our collective histories. While increased public recognition of these legacies and processes of redress such as Canada's Truth and Reconciliation Commission are positive steps, concrete focus on return of land and land rights remains a distant horizon.
