World’s Favourite Christie: David Suchet's Favourite


World’s Favourite Christie is a global vote dedicated to finding the definitive favourite Agatha Christie book. Voting runs from 27th April until the 31st May. The World’s Favourite Christie will be announced in September. The World’s Favourite Christie is part of a year round celebration of Christie’s life, legacy and literature. There is much to be celebrated in an author who is published in over 100 languages, wrote over 80 novels and short stories, scripted 19 plays including the longest running play of all time The Mousetrap, and created world famous detectives Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple.

“For me, The ABC Murders has to be the World’s Favourite Christie. I am bowled over by the genesis of the plot, and love that the places in the railway guide provide the clues to the names of the murder victims. This is one of Agatha Christie’s very best novels, and showcases the genius in her ability to produce so many novels about one detective, and yet come up with so many storylines. I enjoyed filming The ABC Murders as much as any of the other episodes, and I am so proud to have been her Poirot for a quarter of a century. The ABC Murders gets my vote for the World’s Favourite Christie.”

— David Suchet

About the book: There's a serial killer on the loose. His macabre calling-card? To leave the ABC Railway Guide beside each victim's body. But if A is for Alice Ascher, bludgeoned to death in Andover, and B is for Betty Bernard, strangled with her belt on the beach at Bexhill, then who will victim C be? Hercule Poirot is intrigued by this murderer's mind. Something just doesn't ring true about a psychopath who lays his clues so carefully.
