Criticizing Agatha Christie

The tradition of the mystery or crime novel is an old and honored one, but its quality has been debased. And possibly nothing has done more harm to the nature of mystery fiction than the notion that it should concern itself more with "whodunit" than why the deed was done. Chief among those responsible for this decline in Agatha Christie.
