Poison, knives and bullets riddle the stories of Agatha Christie but so does food, which she uses to invoke settings, to develop characters and, of course, to commit murder. This to-die-for cookbook offers one accessible, easy-to-make dish or drink for each of the Duchess of Death's 66 novels. Karen Pierce has diligently selected a most delectable range of intriguing dishes mentioned throughout the collected works of Agatha Christie and recreated the recipes to satiate our culinary curiosity.

Recipes include A Perfect Cup of Coffee (The Mysterious Affair at Styles), Rice Pudding (The Murder at the Vicarage), Oysters Rockefeller (Murder on the Orient Express), Lemon Squash Cocktail (Death on the Nile) and Thomas Roger's Potatoes (And Then There Were None). Learn how to make an exquisite omelet, how to roast a leg of lamb properly and how to serve perfectly timed steak frites .The collection offers insightful details about the recipes' histories and their context in Christie's life and times. All dishes appear respective to their eras-so steak fried for 1923 but marinated and grilled for 1964.
