“What most impresses me about Agatha Christie (and what she doesn’t often get credit for), is her comprehension of the human heart.” (S. J. Rozan, Edgar Award-winning author)
“The Beresfords are wonderfully revived. Smooth, beautifully paced, and effortlessly convincing.” (New York Times)
From the Back Cover
Tommy and Tuppence Beresford have just become the proud owners of an old house in an English village. Along with the property, they have inherited some worthless bric-a-brac, including a collection of antique books. While rustling through a copy of The Black Arrow, Tuppence comes upon a series of apparently random underlinings.
However, when she writes down the letters, they spell out a very disturbing message: "Mary Jordan did not die naturally." And sixty years after their first murder, Mary Jordan's enemies are still ready to kill. . . .See all Product Description

Top Customer Reviews
This is the last book that Agatha Christie wrote, although not the last one to be published ï¿½ it was followed by a few other, like Curtain, but they all date from before Postern. Unfortunately, Postern of Fate is one of, if not the, very worst books Christie wrote, and as such forms a sad ending to the enormously successful career of the Dame of Crime. The story never succeeds in catching the readersï¿½ attention. It goes on and on, without really making a point. And when the chaotic plot finally unfolds in the last twenty pages, you might as well go to sleep. Strangely the conclusion is even more tiresome.
The only reason to ever read this book is when you are like me and want to read every book written by Agatha Christie. But even then, be prepared to be utterly disappointed.

Postern of Fate, published in 1973, was the last book ever written by the incomparable Agatha Christie. My vote for her worst book ever was Passenger to Frankfurt. Read morePublished on June 9 2003 by Lisa Bahrami
