In this tense and exciting book, Kathleen Tynan vividly recreates the strange events surrounding the mysterious disappearance from her home in 1926 of the world-famous Agatha Christie. For ten days the missing writer was sought high and low. The police dragged the ominous Silent Pool in Surrey, near which her abandoned car had been found. Thousands of amateur detectives joined in countrywide searches. The newspapers speculated about foul play and loss of memory - one paper even offered �100 for information on her whereabouts. Her husband, Colonel Christie, who had fallen in love with another woman, suggested that Agatha's disappearance was of her own volition. The whole country was in a ferment of speculation. Then, quite suddenly, it all stopped. Agatha Christie was discovered staying at a hotel in Harrogate, where her husband went to collect her. They returned together to their home, Styles. What was really behind this strange affair and why was Agatha in Harrogate? Kathleen Tynan, with great flair and originality, proposes an imaginary but imaginative solution to the mystery that readers are bound to find enthralling as well as highly entertaining. 189 pages.
