by Agatha Christie directed by Patrick Dooley

I have been a confirmed mystery lover since the first grade when a cousin of mine introduced me to the Hardy Boys. From there I went through every mystery book series that I could find; from Nancy Drew to The Three Investigators, The Happy Hollisters and Encyclopedia Brown. About 3 years later, I was poking around in my grandparents' attic, and I uncovered a box of books whose central figures were a little old lady and a fat Belgian with a waxed moustache. I discovered Agatha Christie, a writer whose worlds of elegant Caribbean estates, fog-shrouded English villages and sumptuous cabins in overnight trains opened up a rich fantasy life for a ten-year-old boy in a small town in Virginia.
