Agatha Christie wrote over a hundred plays, short story collections, and novels, which have been translated into 103 languages, and she has been outsold only by the Bible and Shakespeare. No one has succeeded in imitating her, though many have tried, and she remains the bestselling modern writer throughout the world.
