Readers can vote for their favourite title from more than 80 books via the website ‘World’s Favourite Christie’. Twenty-five books have also been shortlisted ‘with the help of celebrities and fans’, including crime novelist Val McDermid, whose favourite novel is The Murder at the Vicarage, and Hercule Poirot actor David Suchet, who has voted for The ABC Murders.
