Mathew Prichard, Chairman of Agatha Christie Limited and grandson of Agatha Christie said: "It's exciting to see, almost 40 years after her death, that my grandmother's books are still so popular. Her fans come from around the world, and from diverse walks of life, and we're looking forward to hearing from them wherever they are. I'm intrigued to see which book unites them as their favourite."
