Through the Keyhole: Agatha Christie Edition

Back in June I did my first Through the Keyhole quiz, which asked sharp eyed readers to look at images of keyholes. Inside each keyhole would be a snippet of a classic crime novel cover. The name of the game was to decide which titles were hiding behind the keyholes. Today’s quiz runs along similar lines, except this time the topic is more refined – it is Agatha Christie books. The only difference to this quiz is that there is no bonus challenge. I have shared this on Twitter and Instagram, but I thought my blog readers might enjoy it too. Answers will be posted in December. Good Luck!

  2. Regarding 5, there is actually no published book with this cover. It is simply a book cover designed by graphic designer Don Welch and uploaded on Behance (a social media platform owned by Adobe whose main focus is to showcase and discover creative work.)

    • I wasn’t aware of that. I appreciate with this type of quiz knowledge of imprints and their specific designs does make it easier to guess title. However, another way of tackling these covers was to consider the object partially on view and which title is related to that object. I guess that is why I chose that particular cover for number 5, as it was not one I had seen before, yet the object on show is highly relevant to the plot of the book.
