Pat is a voracious reader of mysteries - all kinds - cozies, police procedural, thriller, hardboiled, noir, classics, etc. just to name a few. It is her favorite genre of books and she has read thousands over the years. Her favorite mystery author of all times has always been Agatha Christie. Undoubtedly, Ms. Christie is the favorite of many people. It has been 100 hundred years since her first novel introducing her most famous detective, Hercule Poirot, was published. Although she has been dead for nearly 45 years, her books continue to be popular - having been outsold by only the Bible and Shakespeare. So Pat wanted to set a table to celebrate such a grand achievement.
