阿加莎·克里斯蒂是有史以来最畅销的侦探小说家, “不到最后一刻你绝对猜不到结局”的悬疑风格令她的作品经久不衰,受欢迎程度仅次于《圣经》和莎士比亚。

她的作品受到故乡德文郡乡村风光的启发,隐秘的海滩和真实的村庄都成为她笔下虚构的案发地点。由她创作的赫尔克里·波洛和马普尔小姐是悬疑小说爱好者们津津乐道的侦探形象--洞察敏锐、断案如神。

本期天一云读·原版书,我们推荐四本阿婆最经典的悬疑小说,一起到故事中去探究她与她的作品经久不衰的秘密。

Agatha Christie(1890-1976)is the best-selling detective writer of all time. Her detective mystery books have remained enduringly popular in the world, only the Bible and Shakespeare have been more widely read.

Agatha’s novels are inspired by Devonshire landscape, with hidden coves and real villages becoming fictional places of murder. Her famous creations--Detective Hercule Poirot and Jane Marple are quite perspicacious and intelligent.

Today we recommend four best murder mystery books of Agatha Christie which are all adapted into films, looking into what is it about her that makes her so enduringly popular.

Murder on the Orient Express

《东方快车谋杀案》

Just after midnight, a snowdrift stops the Orient Express in its tracks. The luxurious train is surprisingly full for the time of the year, but by the morning it is one passenger fewer.

Isolated and with a killer in their midst, detective Hercule Poirot must identify the murderer – in case he or she decides to strike again.

午夜过后,一场大雪迫使辛普朗号东方快车停了下来。这列铺位一向宽裕的豪华列车此趟竟然座无虚席。第二天一早,大家发现少了一名乘客。一名美国大亨死在了他的包厢里,被刺了十二刀,可他包厢的门却是反锁的。随着调查的深入,案情却似乎更加扑朔迷离,大侦探波洛想出了两种截然不同的解释……

Death on the Nile

《尼罗河上的惨案》

Beloved detective Hercule Poirot embarks on a journey to Egypt in one of Agatha Christie’s most famous mysteries, Death on the Nile.

The tranquility of a cruise along the Nile was shattered by the discovery that Linnet Ridgeway had been shot through the head. She was young, stylish, and beautiful, a girl who had everything until she lost her life.

Hercule Poirot recalled an earlier outburst by a fellow passenger: "I'd like to put my dear little pistol against her head and just press the trigger." Yet in this exotic setting nothing is ever quite what it seems.

《尼罗河上的惨案》是阿婆最经典作品之一。这一次大侦探波洛登上了开往埃及的邮轮,与波洛一起登船的还有度蜜月的新婚夫妇林内特和多伊尔、决意复仇的杰奎琳、偷偷在琳内特财产上做了手脚的律师,以及其他许多似乎是外人的游客。但尼罗河之旅的宁静很快被一桩命案打破。林内特·里奇维被一颗子弹打穿了头颅,这位年轻、美丽、时尚——拥有一切的女孩,最终失去了自己的生命。

本是一场轻松浪漫的旅行,却因为一场谋杀被迫终止。尼罗河下暗潮汹涌,船上的每个人都可能是凶手,整个游轮都陷入恐慌之中。名侦探波洛先生手里拿着游客名单,努力寻找被人忽略的蛛丝马迹……
