Agatha Christie's The Disappearance of the Western Star

About the Story

Agatha Christie's The Disappearance of the Western Star

Agatha Christie was born in southwest England to a wealthy family. Growing up, Christie enjoyed reading mystery novels by Wilkie Collins and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Many of Christie’s short stories were first published in periodicals and feature the eccentric Belgian detective Hercule Poirot. Poirot later became one of Christie’s most famous characters. Christie’s short story “The Adventure of the Western Star” was first published in The Sketch in April 1923 in the United Kingdom and in The Blue Book Magazine in February 1924 in the United States. The author of 66 detective novels and 15 short story collections, Christie is best known for her bestselling novel And Then There Were None and her play The Mousetrap.
