Cheapest place for Agatha Christie eBooks?

Preferably in EPUB format, but I am willing to convert from Mobi.

I love Christie, and I've been holding off buying the eBooks because last time I looked on the official website they were so darn expensive for what they are! Now, I'm willing to reconsider.

What do you feel is a fair price for a Christie novel (electronic)?

I baulk at paying so much for a dead person's work. Especially if they have been dead for some time and somebody else - thanks to inane copyright laws - is profiteering from their work.

I recently bought Lolita (£4.50-ish) - despite not owning a Kindle (I stripped the DRM and converted to Mobi), and despite Nabokov resting in peace somewhere - because I wanted to be sure of the quality. I didn't want some murky, poor, typo-ridden document acquired from the dark corners of the interwebz spoiling my experience.

Ahem. So yeah, if anybody can point me in the direction of Christie novels - please do!

P.S. I want to read her work in chronological order.

P.P.S. Thanks!

They are £3.99 at Amazon. I'd consider this to be an extremely reasonable price.

I was reading free-in-store at Barnes and Noble yesterday and noticed that they had a complete Agatha Christie listed for $2.99, or $3.99. Since I abhor mysteries I wasn't paying close attention.

I got a complete set, on CD, on ebay for about the same - can't remember who, but one of the regular seller.
Transferred OK, and no faults of any great concern so far - although I do have to ration my Christie, or be in the mood.

[ Just struck me, this was early on in my ereading life, so hope this was legal - If it wasn't, I haven't got them ! ]

These were definitely NOT legal.

Red face Oops.......

Ah...... I very recently began to fear as much.

Well, at least the charity shop won't care............

And it'll sort of diminish the crime ...?

HarperCollins (who hold the international rights) is selling them at Kobo for $6.99 each and sometimes in 3-novel omnibus editions for $17.99. These are Kobo and epub editions. Your public library may also have a decent selection of these as ebooks as well.
