Later she married Max Mallowan , an archaeologist.
Her most prolific period began in late 1920’s
During the 1930s she published four mystery novels, fourteen Poirot novels, two Marple novels, two Superintendent Battle books, a book of stories featuring Harley Quin and another featuring Mr. Parken Pyne, an additional Maru Westmacott book, and two original plays.
Poirot , disillusioned by the “senseless cruel brutality” of modern crime, pays no attention to the sad case of Mrs. Mc Ginty, an old woman apparently struck dead by her lodger for thirty pounds that she kept under a floorboard. When, however , he is asked by an investigating officer to take another look at the case in order to stop an innocent man from going to the gallows, he realizes that things may not be as simple as they first appeared to be.
"This village murder begins among the rural proletariat but after a time it moves toward the better-spoken classes. Highly ingenious – at this point she is still able to vary the tricks she plays, not repeat them."
Agatha Christie is truly a prolific writer who after being struck by the senseless cruel brutality of modern crime was amazed when she saw the case of McGinty’s death. There are enough thrills in the book and it is entertaining to move through the course of it.The best part of her writings is that Christie always gives a logical explanation for crimes, but society is not blamed. Murder is not a sign of degeneration of middle-class values. After the crime is solved, life continues happily.
