What you need to know before your trail

All great crime writers have their favourite creations. Similarly, every great sleuth has his, or her, own preferred method of deduction.

Take the charming Parker Pyne, who relies upon an intuitive knowledge of human nature to solve the Problem at Pollensa Bay. Or Mr Satterthwaite, who seeks inspiration through his collaboration with the enigmatic Mr Quin in The Harlequin Tea Set mystery. Then, of course, there’s Poirot, whose measured analysis of motive and opportunity is tested to the full in Yellow Iris, when he receives an anonymous call about a matter of life and death.

Travel Guide

Travel around Majorca’s Pollensa Bay with Agatha Christie

Agatha Christie visited the town in the early 20th century and stayed at a hotel in the Pine Walk area, which she describes like this:

“… a small hotel standing on the edge of the sea looking out over a view that in the misty haze of a fine morning had the exquisite vagueness of a Japanese print.”
