Brilliant mystery novel,posing as the explanation for a 10 day 1926 disappearance of Agatha Christie,while simultaneously questioning whether her creative literary mind could be manipulated to commit crimes or evade the control of a doctor inspired by her book "The Murder of Roger Ackroyd" . Details of her marital problems with Archie Christie, the Surrey Constabulary's manhunt for her, and the death of a 20 year-year old Una Crowe are facts cleverly woven into the plot.

As a big fan of Agatha Christie, I did enjoy this book. It does hold a few surprises, which is the hallmark of her writing. If you like Christie's stories, I think you will enjoy this.
