Monsieur Brown

Limited edition hardback

Un classique de la reine du crime pour la première fois en édition vintage.

Tuppence et Tommy Beresford, de vieux amis démobilisés après la Première Guerre mondiale, se voient tous deux mêlés à une affaire délicate : des papiers sont en cavale, qui compromettent l’ordre social établi au Royaume-Uni. Leur adversaire : un certain Monsieur Brown, la pièce maîtresse du jeu. Mais voilà ! personne n’est capable de se rappeler quoi que ce soit de Monsieur Brown, pas même son visage. La description qu'on donne invariablement de lui, c'est qu'il ressemble à tout le monde…

Deuxième roman écrit par la reine du crime, Monsieur Brown vous offrira un duo d’enquêteurs jeunes et fougueux, un suspense mordant, et un incroyable jeu de piste sur toile de fond politique. Que demander de plus ?

Traduction révisée d’Albine Vigroux

Jacket An Elusive Woman US

Agatha Christie: An Elusive Woman

Hardback

Great for non-fiction fans, and crime fiction readers alike.

Why did Agatha Christie spend her career pretending that she was 'just' an ordinary housewife, when clearly she wasn't? As Lucy Worsley says, 'She was thrillingly, scintillatingly modern'. She went surfing in Hawaii, she loved fast cars, and she was intrigued by the new science of psychology, which helped her through devastating mental illness.

With access to personal letters and papers that have rarely been seen, Lucy Worsley's biography is both authoritative and entertaining and makes us realise what an extraordinary pioneer Agatha Christie was - truly a woman who wrote the twentieth century.
