From the book back:
Queen of Crime, Duchess of Death,First Lady of Detection, Agatha Christie was the most successful English writer of all times. Translated into 103 languages (14 more than Shakespeare), her books have sold four hundred million copies, earning her a fortune in every currence on earth. But she herself was more mysterious than her fictions. On December 3, 1926, she vanished - only to be found ten days leter, living under an assumed name in a resort hotel. Now, Gwen Robyns fully explores this still unsolved case, as well as every other aspect of Mrs. Christie's closely guarded life; her stormy first marriage, her illustrious friends, and her love of buying and redecorating houses (at one time she owned eight). Agatha Christie's autobiography is reticent; "The Mystery of Agatha Christie" is the only book that tells us the inside story of this demure woman who, more than anyone else, made murder familiar.

"Chock-full ofanecdotes and amusing tales of Christie's crotchets and kindnesses"
-- Washington Post

"Fans will savor every page of this graceful and intriguing biography."
-- Publishers Weekly
