Agatha Christie
Agatha Mary Clarissa Christie (1890 –1976) was a British author, poet and playwright famed for her crime and detective fiction. The creator of Miss Marple and Hercule Poirot is the best-selling author of all time.
A prolific writer, Christie grew up in a privileged background, and was home schooled. A voracious reader, Christie first took up writing as a hobby and then made it her life's work when the pieces she published garnered attention.

Poirot accent tough to handle.

Of course Christie's story was excellent. I have been spoiled by Hugh Frazier performances, apparently, because the Poirot accent for this was pretty awful. Other voices were fine.
