The Most Famous Mystery Novelists

Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie

Sherlock Holmes and Agatha Christie

I like mystery novels. I imagine Britain to be full of mystery. The reason is the existence of 2 famous novelists: 1) Arthur Conan Doyle, and 2) Agatha Christie. So the most famous mystery novelists are from Britain.

Arthur Conan Doyle is the famous novelist who created the detective ”Sherlock Homes.” And he produced many mysteries, in particular the famous novels “The Sign of Four” and ”The Hound of the Baskervilles.”

Agatha Christie is called the “Queen of Mystery” and symbolizes the greatest mystery novelist of the 20th century. She not only wrote about mysteries and trickery, but also wrote about the human characters “Hercule Poirot” & “Miss Jane Marple.”

I like the novels written by Agatha Christie. I was surprised to read “Murder on the Orient Express” and “The ABC Murders”! I think their existence attests that England is the country of mystery!

And their mystery novels are some of the most popular novels in Japan!
