The Complete Miss Marple by Agatha Christie & Kate Mosse

Leather Bound in Wooden Carry Case
New & Unread

A beautiful limited leatherbound edition containing every Miss Marple novel and short story written by Agatha Christie, in its own luxurious wooden box with full colour map of St Mary Mead. Limited to a worldwide print of 500 copies, this groundbreaking edition of Agatha Christie’s Miss Marple books has the distinction of being the biggest book in the world. With the novels and short stories presented in the order in which they were written and published, this hand-bound 4032-page book is the first time anyone has ever tried to consolidate the 32 separate Miss Marple cases into a single volume.

Unless you have the knees and thighs of a body-builder, this extraordinary book will be a little tricky to read, and so we'll also supply you with a complete collection of all 32 'Miss Marple' novels in paperback, free of charge.

Described by her friend Dolly Bantry as the typical old maid of fiction’, Miss Marple has lived almost her entire life in the sleepy hamlet of St Mary Mead. Yet, by observing village life she has gained an unparalleled insight into human nature and used it to devasting effect. As her friend Sir Henry Clithering, the ex-Commissioner of Scotland Yard has been heard to say: She’s just the finest detective God ever made’ and many Agatha Christie fans would agree.

From the first Miss Marple novel, The Murder at the Vicarage published in 1930, her crime-fighting career spanned over forty years by the time Agatha Christie wrote her final case Nemesis in 1971. With every tale flawlessly plotted by the Queen of Crime, this remarkable edition provides a feast for Agatha Christie fans as well as those who have grown to love the detective through her continuing film and television appearances, with Julia McKenzie now the seventh actress to star in the role.

Strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide, this numbered edition is hand-bound in real red leather and includes a unique flexible spine that allows for this remarkable book to be read from cover to cover. Including a new full-colour official map of St Mary Mead and forewords by Agatha Christie’s grandson Mathew Prichard and the award-winning bestselling author Kate Mosse, the one foot-thick book comes housed in its own wooden case adorned with brass fittings and with a leather handle, and is sure to be a major talking point amongst Agatha Christie fans and book collectors everywhere.

About the Author: Agatha Christie was born in Torquay in 1890 and became, quite simply, the best-selling novelist in history. Her first novel, ‘The Mysterious Affair at Styles’, written towards the end of the First World War, introduced us to Hercule Poirot, who was to become the most popular detective in crime fiction since Sherlock Holmes. She is known throughout the world as the Queen of Crime. Her books have sold over a billion copies in the English language and another billion in 44 foreign languages. She is the author of 80 crime novels and short story collections, 19 plays, and six novels under the name of Mary Westmacott and saw her work translated into more languages than Shakespeare. Her enduring success, enhanced by many film and TV adaptations, is a tribute to the timeless appeal of her characters and the unequalled ingenuity of the plots.
