I have read almost everything by Agatha Christie and have always wondered what could have happened to make her disappear the way she did and also why. This very interesting book looks into this and explains what occurred at this sad time in her life and gives an insight into the kind of person that she was. Looking back at that period in time, it seems astonishing that she could have been missing for so long. This version is more informative of her private life than her own autobiography. The facts have been produced by family and close friends of A.C. and so is a very believable account of what happened at this time in her life. For any Agatha Christie fans this is a must read and even if you have read her own autobiography, it is still compelling reading.

I found this book a real page turner. Knowing the story well, I was interested to see what Jarad Cade could bring new to his book. I was amazed at the detail he added to the missing days of Agatha Christie. The unbiased way he handled the new knowledge he had received.
Having read the Autobiography and biograhies of Agatha Christie this book is much more informative.
A really good book,well researched and well written.

This was an amazingly good book. Jarred has been fortunate in obtaining so much new information from Nan Watts family so at last we know what really happened in December1926. I felt he was very truthful about the main characters and that Max and Archie are described in an entirely different way to other books I have read on the subject. Rosalind comes across as a spoilt little rich girl who never worked for her living but was entirely dependant on her wealthy mother. Jarred focuses throughout on the disappearance and how it affected the rest of Agathas life. Interesting to see how she used aspects of her life in her books. Sometimes a bit repetitive but very readable and detailed.

I absolutely loved this book. I have always been interested in Agatha Christie and I feel this book brings you closer to the type of person she was.

There is little doubt that this is a well researched book. You cannot doubt the author's commitment to searching out the truth, and meticulous research. Why have I not given 5 stars? The last chapters are dragged out, and her use of the constant naming "Laura Thompson" in the last chapter is clumsy, and the whole attack of other biographers seemed petty. Cade at one point gives anonymity to the person that spent 6 months with Max, why? This did not stand up with the rest of the biography. The idea that someone doesn't want something revealed and the author seems happy to go along with it, goes against what the rest of this biography is supposed to be about. I was also surprised that the rest of the book was a biography. The title and expectations isn't as simple as looking at her disappearance.

This is a fascinating read to all those Christie fans who wondered what really happened on the night of her disappearance. I enjoyed the angle that the author took on the destructive triangle of Nancy, Archie and Agatha. One piece of advice, though: skip Chapter 28 entirely. The chapter consists entirely of the author making an extended snipe at another Christie biographer, in forensic detail. His rant, laced with plenty of references about how he is a far better author and researcher, is embarrassingly undignified, defensive and unprofessional.
