Look for some fascinating links to the history of detective and mystery novel writing in our new story! The Mystery at Pendragon House has
The Phantom meeting an ultra-professional female crime writer and amateur detective who could only be based on Dame Agatha
Christie! Dame Agatha was a prolific writer of novels, plays and short stories for most of her long life and as most people know, the majority of her books are still in print.The fact that Pendragon House is situated in Great Britain provides an even stronger link to Dame Agatha because so many of her mysteries were based around rambling old British homes and the strange familes who lived in them. Look closely and you will definitely spot a number of characters who appeared in many of her stories! Full marks to Claes Reimerthi for a clever and engrossing script and also to artist Joan Boix who has perfectly captured the fashions, architecture, furniture and culture of the times. Reimerthi has also managed to write his script in a manner similar to Dame Agatha’s famous style, injecting lots of characters, lengthy dialogue and loads of clues to keep the readers guessing!....
