In retrospect it seems as if Agatha had been installed at the pinnacle of international success for decades. In fact it was a long, if steady, climb. She became the acknowledged leader among mystery writers only in the early nineteen-seventies, the moment when her British and American publishers chose to promote her books more vigorously than ever. She herself had confessed to Max after the war that she must be included among the four most eminent detective-story writers, in her article for Russia; even in 1961, however, the Cork and Ober offices issued to staff a list of “Christie” manuscripts which might now be destroyed.
