My name is Brad, and I have been teaching Drama, Film studies and English to high school students in Northern California for the past 27 years. I have been a passionate fan of movies, mysteries and musicals for much longer than that!

  1. Hey Brad, we’re just discovering your blog today. As fellow Agatha Christie fanatics, we wanted to: 1) say hello; and 2) invite you to listen to our podcast, All About Agatha (on iTunes or Stitcher: you can click the link on our Twitter profile @allaboutthedame), in which we analyze/critique/adore every single Agatha Christie novel in order of (UK) publication. We even attempt to rank them. (All in good fun.) Hope you get a chance to check it out!


    1. I think there’s a follow button somewhere on the main page, usually on the right side, Dorothy. I don’t see it because it’s my own blog, but I have followers, so I know it’s there!


    1. Let’s see: reading from left to right, Lord Peter Wimsey, Miss Marple, Dr. Gideon Fell, Father Brown, Inspector Maigret, Edgar Allen Poe, Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Charlie Chan, Ellery Queen and Nero Wolfe! I think that’s correct!


  2. Just discovered this wonderful blog, and am excited to see such in depth, perceptive analysis of Agatha Christie. Trying to resist the urge to resurrect too many old posts with comments of my own.

    One question – what is GAD?


    1. Hey, Rick! Thanks for reading! I hope you will look around and comment on things. “GAD” stands for the Golden Age of Detection (of which Christie was queen!) – the period roughly between 1920-1940 when classic detective story authors flourished.
