It comes ahead of celebrations to mark the author's 125th birthday on September 15.The book is the most successful Christie novel, selling over 100 million copies and is currently being made into a series for BBC One starring Aidan Turner (Poldark). Widely considered to be Christie's masterpiece, it is the bestselling crime thriller of all time.

The book sees ten strangers, apparently with little in common, lured to an island mansion off the coast of Devon by the mysterious U.N.Owen. Over dinner, a record begins to play, and the voice of an unseen host accuses each person of hiding a guilty secret.

That evening, former reckless driver Tony Marston is found murdered by a deadly dose of cyanide. The tension escalates as the survivors realise the killer is not only among them but is preparing to strike again!

The World's Favourite Christie poll was created as part of the celebrations to commemorate Christie's life and work which includes The International Agatha Christie Festival.
